i get this error " java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.struts.action.DynaActionForm" when i try to configure a form bean tag with the type as dynaaction form. i have a validation form for the page. but i do not configure that in teh struts-config.xml. if i do that my application works fine but if i try to create a dyna action form and try not to use the valdiation form it throws me an error which is mentioned above. Could any one tell me where am i making a mistake.Thx in advance.
