First off are you sure that's your only submit button on the form? If 
you have more than one button, I believe enter will use the first one it 
comes to.

Assuming that the update button is the only button, I vaguely 
remembering running into an issue like this once before. The way I ended 
up fixing this is I now like to use Javascript to set my dispatch 
property. By default I have a default one set up on the page:

<input type="hidden" name="dispatch" value="update"/>

(You could even make this a form bean property if you want and have it 
set up in your action so it could be more dynamic:
<html:hidden property="dispatch"/>  assuming you have a dispatch 
property in your form bean and set it to a default value somewhere)

Then if you have other buttons on the page that need to change the 
dispatch value I just use javascript:


(Above would be more clean if you use a resuable javascript method to 
set the dispatch property)
