Have a action class that populates data to be loaded into <html:select>, on completion the control goes to the jsp, where the form is displayed. I have configured commons validator in this jsp, by including the 2 xml files, extending ValidatorForm instead of ActionForm and also overriden the validate() method But i want the validator to perform validate when i submit the form, rather when i click on certain hyperlink. This doesnt happen, validator is executed when the jsp is loaded... which is not what i want.... What do i do?

see if ur hyperlink has the same form associated with that ...then obviously that valudate method gets executed ......for this u can ValidatorActionForm than ValidatorForm which will work depending on the path of the action arther than the form bean name
