Struts validation framework- for single form, multiple actions

I have three struts actions and a single form bean. I am declaring three different form-beans in the struts-config.xml with three different form names for the same form bean java class. How can I validate the forms using the struts validator framework?

My struts-config.xml will look like this:

Inside my jsp for the form, I am declaring the script for enabling the client side alert as:


#####################################################################
<html:javascript formName="customerRegistrationForm"
method="validateForm" dynamicJavascript="true" staticJavascript="false"
cdata="false" />
<html:javascript formName="projectRegistrationForm"
method="validateForm" dynamicJavascript="true" staticJavascript="false"
cdata="false" />
<html:javascript formName="proposalRegistrationForm"
method="validateForm" dynamicJavascript="true" staticJavascript="false"
cdata="false" />
