Hi,
I have a web application deployed on Orion Servert. I am using Struts stuffs.
This is my validation.xml
<form-validation>
<formset>
<form name="employeeForm">
<field
property="name"
depends="required">
<arg0 key="employeeForm.name"/>
</field>
</form>
</formset>
</form-validation>
In the struts-config.xml, I have the following..
<global-forwards>
<forward name="employeeform" path="/employeeForm.jsp"/>
</global-forwards>

<!-- Action Mapping Definitions -->
<action-mappings>
<action path="/insertEmployee"
type="net.reumann.InsertEmployeeAction"
name="employeeForm"
scope="session"
input = "employeeform"
>
<forward
name="success"
path="/confirmation.jsp"/>
<forward
name="failure"
path="/confirmation.jsp"/>

</action>
</action-mappings>

When I submit my JSP, And If I dont enter the name field , Validation fails as expected but my request is not getting forwarded.
I am getting this message from the console.
Deligating Via Forward to 'employeeform'.
I am getting Internal Server error on the page.

When I enter the name field, the flow goes fine.
Please help me on this.
Thanks,
Umar

By default you have to specify the web resource as the input.
If you want to use forwards for your inputs, you have to setup the controller element as follows:
<controller nocache="true" inputForward="true" maxFileSize="2M" />
(Controller element is after action-mappings element but before the message-resource element).
Basically you have to set the inputForward attribute to true.
If you like this answer, check out the book Professional Struts or Struts Live or my company ArcMind.
