Yes ...we can do Form Checking/Validation using simple Action Form's validate() method.

Using DynaActionForm is just another way of doing Form Validation.

Actually, the DynaActionForm class has nothing at all to do with validation. It's just a way of dynamically declaring fields in an ActionForm without having to write a class.

What you're probably referring to is the Struts Validadion Frameork. That is accessed by having your ActionForm extend Validator form (or if you've been using DynaActionForm, use DynaValidatorForm instead) and then declaring the validations in a validator.xml file.
