html:form tag action - configurable

Hi Everyone

I want to control the code that shows up in the html:form tag action property in the jsp (i.e. action="/internal/save.do" or action="/internal/update.do"). I'm using the same jsp and ActionForm - the only thing different is the controller selection. I can render the page if I put something like "nextAction" "/internal/save.do" onto the request and then use a scriptlet in the jsp --- but I don't like this approach.

Does anyone know how to address this problem?
Any help greatly appreciated.

Mark,
This probably isn't the best way, but we sometimes use JavaScript to change the value of the action depending on what the user has clicked.
