Have you looked at the API for these two classes? Their names might share the same words but they are quite different. ForwardAction is a type of action where ActionForward is the object that you return from your execute method.

From the 1.1 documentation (at http://struts.apache.org/1.1/api/index.html):

ActionForward: An ActionForward represents a destination to which the controller servlet, ActionServlet, might be directed...as a result of processing activities of an Action class.

ForwardAction: An Action that forwards to the context-relative URI specified by the parameter property of our associated ActionMapping.
