Is there a new-line there in the file? I'm not sure if it would work but I'll prefer being on the safer side with:

you will put this in your validator.xml
<!-- Tast form Validation-->
<form name="TestForm">
    <field  property="username"
         <arg key="username.name"/>

in jsp page
html stuff...

<html:form action="/TestValidation" method="post" onsubmit="return validateTestForm(this);">
<html:text property="username" size="25" maxlength="25"/>
<!-- Begin Attention Here-->
<html:javascript formName="TestForm"/><!-- you didnt put this in your code -->
<!-- End Attention Here :) -->

html stuff...

If you are working with eclipse sometimes you need to restart tomcat when you change the xml files.
