Is it possible to specify the <form name=ACTIONAME"> in Validation.xml instead of actual form name

short answer, no
i am assuming you are looking to validate depending on which action you call, particularly you don't want validation to occur when the user is presented the first time? there are a couple of ways to go about it.
2. structure your action-mappings intelligently. create 2 action mappings with 2 different paths, but pointing to the same form-bean. in the second action, change the validate attribute to "true" and set the input to the path of the first action-mapping.
