In the mean time I found a simple solution.

I have added a property get/setFocus in my class which holds the
name of the HTML input field

the validate function can set it.

inside my jsp. the struts:form tag includes some java:
 <struts:form   action=""
                    focus="<%= fooForm.getFocus() %>"

seems to work

thanks Christophe
