One thing you cannot do is change the value of "input" on an instance 
of ActionMapping which was created by Struts from a struts-config.xml 
-- those objects are shared and their configurations are frozen after 

To do what you describe, you would have to make changes to the 
RequestProcessor class.  This is certainly possible, but for your use 
case, you may just find it simpler to do the validation yourself in 
an action class.  Just set "validate='false'" in your <action> 
element and then write your action class knowing that the validation 
needs to happen.
