A struts 1.x solution would be to include generic edit* mappingThis example employs wildcard
characters for Naming Action Classes,specifying Form Name,Forwarded path<!--
Generic edit* mapping implemented with <action path="/SomeName*" --><!-- Note the
use of parameters for consructing name of Action Classes e.g. EditAAction,EditBAction --><!--
Note the ability to select a specific Form based on the parameter passed in AForm, BForm --><!--
Note the capability of forwarding to specific jsp based on parameter passed in as in A.jsp,B.jsp-->

Have you looked into Struts Menu?
It has a declarative approach where you can specify menus in xml but also a taglib that may
allow you to build them dynamically.
It's pretty nifty.
Regarding the navigation, I'd stick with the first solution you pointed out.
Using inheritance seems a bit overkill plus it reduces the decoupling between your actions
(suppose you want to use them outside of the menu context).

We have to developp a new application and we want to with a good design.

Basically we have a set of functionalities (user management, user data control, user data
conversion, ...) the availabilty of those functionalities is controlled via a dynamic menu.

Hi planned to define one action for each functionality. 
But for the menu whats the best solution ?

I see two solutions :

1° Adding an extra action for the menu and implement Action chaining if I need to jump back
to the menu.
2° All the actions extends a base class wich implement menu management routine and I use
global forward.
