Problem with ActionForm

I have a form bean class in a jar file and it is not extending ActionForm, Now I need to use that bean and need to write Action class to that. In struts-config.xml I have configured that bean and in Action class I wrote

User user = (User)form; and in eclipse it is showing error Cannot cast from ActionForm to User.

How can I solve this problem.

You can't cast from an ActionForm to a bean or vo. You have to map the variables manually. Create a mapFormToXXXX method.
I agree. Here's the link:
