ActionForm is null

P: n/a
I'm building a feedback form which has some 5 radio buttons and a
comments text area. But the feedback form should be personalised
before a user can see. In the sense that if he opens the url, his
name, and other details should appear on the page.

Now to personalise the page, I have a url like this
reseller_feedback.do?method=methodFlowDetails&uID= XXX&qRef=YYY

which says which action class to call, which method to call, what are
the parameters. This is working fine and displaying all the necessary
fields.

Now, in the same jsp i have some 5 radio buttons, a comments text
area, and a submit button. When the page is submitted i need to save
these values in the database. i have defined a <html:form> tag
something like this in jsp page. It should call saveMethod when it
gets submited.

<html:form name="FORMNAME" type="pacakage name of the FORMNAME"
action="/reseller_feedback.do?method=saveMethod">

And the method is like this

public ActionForward saveMethod(ActionMapping oActionMapping,
ActionForm oActionForm,
HttpServletRequest
httpservletrequest,
HttpServletResponse
httpservletresponse) throws
IOException, ServletException
{
try {
System.out.println("-->>"+oActionForm);
strMappingUrl = "NEXTPAGE";
} catch (Exception exc) {
}
return (oActionMapping.findForward(strMappingUrl));
}
now when i'm printing the oActionFrom before casting it into FORMNAME
for further process but it is giving null. I don't know why. In struts
config.xml file I have the mapping something like this

<action path="/reseller_feedback" type="package path for action
class" name="actionformname" scope="request" parameter="method"
validate="false">
<forward name="NEXTPAGE" path="/JSP/XXX.jsp"/>
</action>

I need this oActionForm 'cos only through that i've to access the
radio button values and the comment. So please can you help me in
finding where i'm wrong.

Thnks in anticipation
