<html:errors/> not working

dear experts

for some reason , my <html:erors/> is now working .

this is  my jsp
<html:form  action="/casemngt/SampleTest.do?method=sampleSave" method="post">
       <TABLE width="725" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
              <Col width="10">
              <Col width="150">
              <Col width="183">
              <Col width="250">
           <TD><div class="LabelField"><bean:message key="sampleText.name" /></div> </TD>
            <TD><html:text property="sampletest1" size="20" maxlength="10"/></TD>
            <TD > </TD>
      <html:submit styleClass="BUTTON1" property="method"><bean:message key="button.save"/>

2) this is my action mapping
<action path="/casemngt/SampleTest"
         <forward name="success" path="samplePage.display" >

3)my form bean
<form-bean name="testForm" type="org.apache.struts.validator.DynaValidatorForm" dynamic="true">
         <form-property name="docAcsesNumber" type="java.lang.String" />
         <form-property name="sampletest1" type="java.lang.String" />

4)in my web.xml file i have validate=true and i have also imported the plug ins for the validations in struts-config like this
<!-- Plugins-->
      <plug-in className="org.apache.struts.validator.ValidatorPlugIn">
            <set-property property="pathnames" value="/WEB-INF/validator-rules.xml, /WEB-INF/validation.xml" />

i am clueless why this is not working?

That is weird. Can you explain us in more depth on the situation that the error messages are not displayed properly?

Is it because of typo?

</html:errors> should be <html:errors />

sorry , it is <html:errors />

Have you setup the validation in validation.xml?
Feor example:
    <form name="testForm">
        <field property="sampletest1" depends="required">
            <arg key="sampleText.name"/>
jaggernatAuthor Commented:
yes i did. every thing is set up but when i click on save its going to the next page without displaying the error message when the field is blank

jaggernatAuthor Commented:
ok guys , i am facing an absolutely goofy situation. my <html:errors/> messages sometimes work and sometimes do not work..i.e  i am able to see error messages when i run my application ,but i dont make any changes and then i run my application again and i dont see the error messages.

do i have to download/get the latest dtd or something.

any advice greatly appreciated

jaggernatAuthor Commented:
i know what exactly the problem is.

when ther are no errors in the page, it goes to the action class.
when ther are errors in page, it does not go to the action class ,but at the same time it does not show me any error messages BECAUSE  my "validation.xml" file is NOT getting detected by struts framwork.

Any help to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated


Can't really help you here as I am not really good in validation of Struts.

This is the behaviour of struts.  Struts will perform validation using validation.xml, if error occured it forward to the 'input' configured in the action. if no error then it will execute the action class.

If strust not detected the validation.xml, you will get error when server startup.

yes ,agree

>>>>BECAUSE  my "validation.xml" file is NOT getting detected by struts framwork

I was wrong. validation.xml was getting detected but there was some problem with application resources file.

I wanted to split points and give it to you and suprapto (250 each).But by mistake , i assigned points to suprapto twice.
i dont know if this can be corrected by the EE admin or something

Hi J,

>>"I wanted to split points and give it to you and suprapto (250 each)."
Yes you can. Ask it to admin to re-open the question. Let me know if you have problems.
