Validating Two Fields Match

I am trying to use validation to check if two fields contain the same password i.e. password and confirm password. I looked at the example on the struts site but I cant seem to get it to work. I keep getting a ValidationException error. Im using struts 1.2.4

In my validation.xml

<field property="password" depends="required,twofields">
<msg name="required" key="errors.required"/>
<msg name="twofields" key="errors.twofields"/>
<arg0 key="userForm.password"/>
<arg1 key="userForm.passwordconfirm"/>
<var>
<var-name>secondProperty</var-name>
<var-value>passwordconfirm</var-value>
</var>
</field>

In my struts-config.xml

<form-bean name="registrationDynaValidateForm"
type="org.apache.struts.validator.DynaValidatorForm">
<form-property name="password" type="java.lang.String"/>
<form-property name="confirmpassword" type="java.lang.String"/>

In validator-rule.xml I have

<global>
<validator name="twofields"
classname="com..ValidationUtil"
method="validateTwoFields"
methodParams="java.lang.Object,
org.apache.commons.validator.ValidatorAction,
org.apache.commons.validator.Field,
org.apache.struts.action.ActionMessages,
javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest"
depends="required"
msg="errors.twofields"/>
Thank you all
