I'm using struts recently for my j2ee application. Initially i was using <html:form action=""> . Now I have the form which has three buttons, exit,submit and modify. So I want to specify three different actions for them. Do I manipulate <html:submit> etc? Pl help

You can submit the form to the same action mapping and struts will use the same formbean and action object. All you have to do in the action class is check which submit button was clicked to decide what to do. You name the submit buttons with different names, and the one that is clicked will be seen via its name in request.getParameter() as not null.

Along the lines of what Adam was saying you could create 4 total actions. The form would submit to the default action and then that action would return a forward to the proper action based on the button that was clicked.
