Hi,

I have a web application based on struts framework. My database table has some required fields and some nullable. The problem I have is if I leave the field in my web form empty, the application inserts an empty string (varchar) instead of a null value.

How can I prevent the web application from converting the empty form fields to and empty string? I really need the fields to stay "NULL".

I am using stuts & validator, velocity and hibernate

thanks.
