Dynamic Forwarding

Hi. I have a custom Form class that extends ValidatorForm. After a failed validation, how can I forward it dynamically. Since, the validation will not go through Action class, where can I define to which page to forward.

Dynamic link like:
/ x)&txtfk=(var y)

Define some forwards in struts-config.xml and use response.redirect(<path>

hmmm...what is you are trying to do? You can define an action as your input setting and that action will get called. There is also a way to get validation to call a forward. Also, since it is on the same request cycle anything that you put on the form or in the request will still be on the request.
