I am new to struts. I have designed a basic log in form that contains user name and password. I need to perform some validation like if the user did not enter the user name or password., an error message should be displayed as we can do in asp.net using required field validation control. I am able to do with java script. But i have been asked to perform server side validation that is using Struts. Kindly help me.
Apologize me if this is been already posted in the forum or if it is silly question

OK. Its hard to read italic, colored text. Make it simple, use default.

Now to your question, If its Struts1, then google Struts commons validator OR use ActionForm#validate() method.

HTH.

I assume you are using Struts 1.x. You can do validation in two ways, either using ActionForm validate() method(refer Struts doc site) or by using Validator plugin(which is now a part of Struts).

Using ActionForm validate method, validation has to be written for each form. Whereas by using Validator plugin, setting rules using regex is enough.

Please note: If you are using Ajax for submitting form, these validations may get bypassed.

Hi..
I have some doubts.
1) I have done with validation of fields using action errors. Please Tell me how to reset the errors displayed in JSP page when a browser back button or reset button is pressed
2) Also i could see the fields not reset when the browser back button is pressed.. Guide me in that.
3) There is a reset method in action form class i have written code to clear the fields and error messages. But i dont know how to call the function.
Please answer to my questions. But i think all questions are related to each other :-)
