Rather than make up names, it's a lot easier if you just use the real
of the forms and classes you're working on.

That error means that Struts can't figure out what form bean you want it
use.  You probably left out the name="formName" attribute, probably in
<action> tag in struts-config.xml.  Post your actual config information
[just the <action> tag] and some of your JSP code, and someone will
spot the error.
