struts validation

Posted on 2004-09-15

I have a struts-JSP (say main.jsp) with a FORM which includes another JSP (page1.jsp) with a FORM.

I validate the page1.jsp FORM through struts-validation.xml

The problem is if i get any validation errors, i am getting only the page1.jsp with errors. I want to show the main.jsp even if there are any validation errors in page1.jsp.

As expected, if there are no errors, main.jsp is displyed.

i know how to do validation in my Form-Action but i want to use struts-validator. Can i do something with ValidatorActionForm in my Action class. If so, could you please tell me how?

Any suggestions?

I think you will have to do your validation by code in the Action, then return the mapping to the main page no matter what...

Struts returns you to the page that caused the errors if they are detected by validation.xml (as you have seen)

Command Line Tips and Tricks

The command line is a powerful tool at the disposal of every Linux user. Although Linux distros come with beautiful user interfaces, it's worthwhile to learn the command line because it allows you to do a number of things that you otherwise cannot do from the GUI.

This attribute 'input' is the page to return when error detected by struts validator.
<action path="/main"

What do you mean by "Can i do something with ValidatorActionForm in my Action class. If so, could you please tell me how?"?

I mean we use 'ValidatorForm' in form-bean to override the the existing validate() method of form-beans with struts validator.

I dont know about 'ValidatorActionForm' ... Is it the similar to 'ValidatorForm', but for form-action class?
