Hi all,

Thanks for giving support to resolve the issues.

I have written a Test Application to test Struts validation framework.
I have created a jsp and form,validation.xml .
But I got this error while i execute that application.i have surfed in the net but i couldn't find any relevant messages(Some post says that its a jar problem).

Can anyone give me a suggestion to resolve this ?
Thanks in Advance.

what is the error?

Do yu have validator-rules.xml?

Did you add plugin in the Struts-config.xml for validator framework?


Failure is not an option.

It seems the jar file is either missing or corrupted or not in the classpath.

Try using latest jar file.

Are you using any IDE?

if not try adding the jar file under /WEB-INF/lib/
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
