i am using validator framework for my struts application. i have created validation.xml and vcalidaton-rules.xml file and i have added validator plugin in struts-config.xml. also i am getting the message as "loading web-inf/validation.xml and web-inf/validation.rules.xml" when i start the application. i have added only three validator elements(required,minlength and integer) only in my validation-rules.xml file. below are the contents of validation.xml file.
whats my problem is when i submit the form without userName userId etc the validation is not occuring for anything. FYI: i am getting 403 forbidden warning for the doctype i have added. is this the problem?
