The only difference between a DispatchAction and a LookupDispatchAciton is that lookupDispatchAction makes more use of the configuration file thereby increasing maintability (as we can change the configuration file without changing the code).
Is that all ?

The main difference is that LookupDispatchAction allows you to change the presentation of your submit buttons without changing the logic in your Action class.
For some good information on the differences, see Struts 1 tips 2 and 3 in this link [ May 28, 2007: Message edited by: Merrill Higginson ]
