If you're using Struts and not using ActionForm beans, you're missing out on about 80 percent of what Struts has to offer. The ActionForm bean provides a way to seamlessly pass data between the HTML layer and the Java layer, with Struts doing most of the work. I'd suggest you read up on ActionForms in chapter 3 of the Struts User Guide.

ActionForm is responsiable for carring data to an Action class.
It populates data on the server side.
I agree. Here's the link:
