validation with struts and tiles

I am using Struts and Tiles in a web application. This works all fine, however, there is a problem which I wanted to see solved.

I want to use the validation methods of the struts forms and actions, but this doesn't seem to cooperate well with tiles.

I'll give the example

a standard page might eg look like this :
-header.jsp (with eg a menubar, or a title, whatever)
-body.jsp (with the hml form)
-footer.jsp (with eg. some navigation buttons, or some general comments)

So in my body.jsp, I have a form and a submit button, this leads me to a struts action and form.
But when there is an ActionError thrown in the validation of the Form class then Struts only shows body.jsp, the header.jsp and footer.jsp are not shown anymore.

How can I solve this ?

problem solved
it was just a stupid error
the solution popped up in my mind yesterday

In the input parameter I put my jsp file, but it has to be my tile definition of course :s

My question was just about the form validation (eg. checking for empty input fields).
But problem solved.
I agree. Here's the link:
