Hi all,

I am developing an astrology website, in which there are two forms , two forms are for male and female.

Both male and female enter their date of birth details as name, date of birth, time of birth and place of birth. I have a simple pojo class with the fields as mentioned. I can able to save single form details.

I am not getting any idea how to store two forms information on one click.

Is this Struts 1 or 2? In Struts1, you can't. You'd have to do one of the following:
1) Create a form with both
2) Have Struts automatically populate one form and use request.getParameter() in your action to populate the other one manually.

Why do you have two separate forms if the information on both forms is the same? Why not have a radio button for male/female and use a single form?
If you have to display male and female information, why not make a single form and sort out the data in your action?
