Hi,

I want to validate my form fields. How do i implement it without using Struts Validator framework?

Also, can i write a validate method in my Action Class?

Thanks.

Oh, wow.

You *can* write validation in your action, but it's a bit unwieldy in 1.1, IIRC (it's been awhile). If you're not doing *any* validation in the ActionForm/etc. then you should just be able to create an ActionErrors, add errors to it, and use saveErrors().
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
