Struts and external javascript files

Hi,

I use the Struts 1.1 Framework and I want to use external javascript files to validate my forms.
But the files depend on the Locale of the Web browser. If it's ES --> src="js/es/myfile.js" and if it's US --> src="js/us/myfile.js"
Unfortunately there is no tag "srckey" with Struts 1.1.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks a lot in advance,

You can get the Locale of the user out of the HTTP headers...

http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-accept-lang-locales.html

What does:

<%
  String bigLoc = request.getHeader( "accept-language" ) ;
  out.println( "<b>" + bigLoc + "</b>" ) ;
  if( bigLoc != null && bigLoc.length() > 2 )
    bigLoc = bigLoc.substring( 0, 2 ) ;
  out.println( "<tt>" + bigLoc + "</tt>" ) ;
%>

give you?

In struts, you should be using Action.getLocale() to get client's current locale. Based on current local, you should try to see if the a js file exists, if not you should fall back to default js file.

Let us know if you have further enquires.

You can use the Struts Validator for this.
In validation.xml you can define a locale specific formSet. For example
<form name="loginForm" locale="fr" country="CA">

There are already some basic validators available. The mask can be very usefull. But you can also add your own (Javascript) to the validator-rules.xml.

For more information about this see http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/userGuide/dev_validator.html

Thanks for the points :)

If you look in the validator-rules.xml that comes with Struts validator, you see that there are already basic validators in it. These should help you, to create your own validators. Basic validators are required, mask, range, maxLength, minLength, date, creditCard, email, byte, short, integer, long, float, double.
I don't know where you can download other examples.

Hope this helps.

Greetz,
Didier
