Repeated code in Servlet and Bean

I have a Servlet and JavaBean working with my formPage.jsp where the jsp has input values and they are validated using JavaBean and Servlet. It works where it also gives a message of how many validations are needed and gives field validation message next to each field that has a validation issue.

Now I want to make it more efficient because I seem to be double coding where I am doing validation in both my Servlet and Bean. For example this condition is repeated in both Bean and Servlet:

Here is my Bean condense to show just one out of my 10 fields:

Servlet Controller condense to show 1 out of the 10 fields:


I am using Scriptlet because my environment will not allow EL or JSTL or Struts. We are using Tomcat 4.1.27.

One thought..

Remove the validation from your servlet and have the bean return a list of errors after all the fields have been populated.
