Different forms with different beans

This is a general question regarding the best way of approaching a problem -

I want to have a form that contains 3 beans - a source, a retrieved bean and a destination bean. The all the beans are variations on a super class Candidate, but represent the different configurations of the data required to add the canidate to a form. So I want to derive a form and and action from the concrete child classes, but I am not really sure if this is wise - can anyone give me some vague pointer - should I create diffent forms and different actionforms / actions to deal with this, or is there a way to deal with the data as a super type?


I agree. Here's the link:
