i am using struts Actionerror was working fine but validator is not working

<%@ page language="java" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-html.tld" prefix="html" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-bean.tld" prefix="bean" %>


  <body >

    <html:form action="/valviji" onsubmit="return validateLookupform(this)" >

     <table width="45%" border=0>
       <td> Symbol </td>
            <td> <html:text property="symbol"/></td>
            <td><bean:message key="Lookupform.symbol" />
                 <td> <html:submit property="submit" value="submit"/></td>


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

<!DOCTYPE form-validation PUBLIC
          "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Commons Validator Rules Configuration 1.1.3//EN"

        <form name="Lookupform">
                    <arg0 key="Lookupform.symbol"/>

                              <!--  mask change -->



<!-- <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

<!DOCTYPE form-validation PUBLIC
          "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Commons Validator Rules Configuration 1.0//EN"

     <form name="Lookupform">
            <field property="symbol" depends="required,mask">
            <arg0 key="Lookupform.symbol"/>


<validator name="required"
.Object, org.apache.commons.validator

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=""/>

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.
