Subject Re: [POLL] ActionFrom vs DynaActionForm

+1 (#1)

IMHO, especially because of IDE auto-completion (wich works with normal
ActionForms but not with Dynas). It really helps me when I don't remember
the exact spelling of a displayed field -- or when I don't remember WHAT
is displayed on screen :P

The time to generate new getters and setters doesn't really bother me...
