Hi Ted,

thanks for the suggestion.
I've implemented it, but I faced the difficulty to get the info
into the form in the first place. I mean I am in an Action class and
want to direct to the okdialog. The ActionForm doesn't exist yet, right?

My solution is to set those infos (forward, message, paramId etc) as
request.attributes. In the validate method of the form I do sth like 
	if (forward == null) {
		forward = (String)request.getAttribute("forward");
	if (message == null) {
		message = (String)request.getAttribute("message");

Would that be ok or are there other ways ?
