Is ActionForm is mandatory in writing an Action class? thanks in advance saiprasanna
If you are talking about writing a seperate class for action form bean, then there is another option where in, you need not write any action form classes, you can use what is known as the DynaActionForms which are present in the org.apache.struts.action package.
Instead of specifying your actionform in the struts-config.xml, you can specify the type as org.apache.struts.action.DynaActionForm, and declare the form properties.
