Hi Guys

I have a form on my jsp file and using the ActionClass-validation.xml method to validate the form inputs. If a field has not been filled in then it will redirect back to the form. The problem is the user will have to re enter all his data. Is there a way where I can repopulate the fields that were already filled in?

If you dispatch to the form JSP (as opposed to redirect) you don't have to do anything in particular.
I agree. Here's the link:
