(You might want to discuss this on the STRUTS-USER list because it is specific
to Struts).

I'm not quite clear on what kind of behavior you are asking for.

If you mean "I want to have more than one form on my page", that is easy to
do.  Simply use more than one <struts:form> tag (just like you would use more
than one <form> tag in straight HTML), each with its own action URI.    If you
use extension mapping as the Struts example application does (everything that
ends with ".do" goes to the controller servlet), then you get what you asked

If you mean "I want more than one action to happen on a single form submit", I
would suggest that you make the initial action that is requested responsible
for calling all of the subordinate actions that need to occur.  In such a
case, the subordinate "actions" need not be implementations of the Action
interface -- they can just be beans that have public methods to do the things
you need.
