I need to set alwaysInvokeValidate to false globally because I don't want write this to all action separatly.

<interceptor-ref name="workflow">
<param name="alwaysInvokeValidate">false</param>
</interceptor-ref>


In other words - I need set up Struts 2 default configuration to another value.

Thanks.

Define your own interceptor stack, set the parameter, and use that stack as the default stack.

Thank you Dave for your response, but this didn't solve my problem.

This is description of my problem:

I have one class named BaseClass, which has method validate(). Next have another one class named SubClass, which extends BaseClass. There have method validate, too, which overrides inherited method validate from BaseClass:



In class SubClass have two methods - accept and decline. I want apply validation only on method accept. Therefore I made method



I hoped, if I good understand to set variable alwaysInvokeValidate to false, that method validate will be called only if I will not have method validate{MyMethodName}()...

But I set alwaysInvokeValidate to false and validate method is still called when I call method decline.

I use anotation @SkipValidation on method decline, too.

Oh; I think I misunderstood what you meant.

Hmm; I would have thought that would work. Which version of S2 are you using?
