DynaValidatorForm, and what do you mean you can't do custom validation?
I just override validate(...) and do my thing, then call
super.validate(...) or not depending on what needs to be done.  There
are some complicated validations that I can't seem to convince Validator
to handle, so I do those in Java code.  

Dynamic forms get me out of writing all those get/set methods, that's
all.  They don't preclude you from having a Java class with other
methods.  I'm also interested in using xdoclet to generate the
ActionForm code, but haven't gotten around to learning how to do it.
