Hi Everyone,
I am looking the concept dynaActionForm in the Struts that help a developer to reduce the number of the ActionForm for each form.

As in the validate() method of the Action Form there is validation of formfields. But we are using the DynaActionForm so where should the validation of the form fields ...........

Means, in case of DynaActionForm where should the validation of FormField done ................

Thanks in advance for the answer
