I don't want to use ActionForm class but I want to use Action class.
What to do?

Nothing special to do then :
In your struts-config file, leave your Action description without any name, so it won't be mapped to any Form.
Define the usual forwards and your Action will be available.


<action path="/MyAction" type="my.package.MyAction" input="input" scope="request">
<forward name="input" path="/input.jsp" />
<forward name="success" path="/myJSP.jsp" />
<forward name="error" path="/error.jsp" />
