Hi, I have an email field to validate in my form and I need to do it using validation.xml.I am using struts 1.1. Here is the code snippet from validation.xml - <field property="dto.contactPerson.email" depends="required,email"> <arg0 key="MyForm.contactPerson.email.displayname"/> </field> The key is defined in ApplicationResources.properties file.The problem is - When I enter NOTHING in the email field, it says that it is required(which means required is working). But if I enter junk characters, it is taking them and does not validate them! Can anyone tell me wut do I need to do to fix this..
When you say "its taking them", are you saying that your form is getting submitted? Is your email validateEmail method getting called? I would put a System.out in there to check to see if it is actually getting called.
