In struts if you have more then 2 forms then you can use the following syntax to access different forms :

When you use the <html:form> tag, action is the only required attribute. Struts looks up the action in the struts-config.xml file and uses the name you gave to the action as the name of the form when it renders the <form> tag. So, if you specify:

<action path="/myAction" name="myForm" />

in your struts-config.xml file, and you specify:

<html:form action="/myAction" >

Struts will render this tag as:

<form name="myForm" action="" >
