struts-config.xml file problem

Hi,
In my project,I have the following scenario.I have a action class whose action forward path should make a call to a method in a dispatch action class.Is this possible in struts?For example,consider the following mapping in struts-config.xml:
<action path="/borrowerOperations" type="com.nucleus.web.app.borrower.actions.BorrowerOperationsAction" parameter="submit">
<forward name="deleteBorrowers" path="/borrowerList.do?method=deleteBorrowers"/>
<forward name="saveBorrowers" path="/borrowerList.do"/>
</action>

In the above example,the forward path named "deleteBorrowers" for the BorrowerOperationsAction class should make a call to the deleteBorrowers method of the dispatch action class represented by the path "/borrowerList.do".
Is this possible?Is the action mapping for the given scenario represented correctly in the struts-config.xml?
Please reply to this as soon as possible.Thanks in advance.

Yes. It is possible. You action call must extend DispatchAction class. and pass a parametername ex:method in struts config file.

Ex:<action path="/data" type="....."
name="dataForm" scope="session" parameter="method" validate="false" >
<forward name="list" path="/xyz.jsp" />

</action>

And you need to include method=edit in your URL or submit action and you should have a method name called edit in your action class.
