My advice is to not forward to another action object. Just use a basic java class, instanciate it in any action object you need to and use its functions.
You could make the object a singleton so that it is instanciated only once and becomes available for any action object that needs it.
This would eliminate the need to do multiple forwards and allow you to do all your processing in a single action class.
