I'm new to struts

Can anyone tell me why a form which has no name can be referred to by a name. For eg

.
.
function okClick(){
        if(validateLoginForm(document.loginForm)){
            document.loginForm.action.value = "signinto";
            document.loginForm.submit();
        }
.
.
<html:form action="/loginAction.do">
..
..
..
..
</html:form>

Nowhere I saw the name of form been given.
How does the form get the name of loginForm as shown in Javascript?

Pls help.

perhaps from your struts config file.
Have a look at the generate <form> tag in the html that is created.

I saw

<form-bean name="loginForm" type="my.com.webportal.common.formbean.LoginForm"/>


in the struts config file

Is it where the form gets its name of loginForm?
