validation Extended Ascii chars

I have to show an error message if the user enters an
extended ascii char (ascii code >127) in any of the fields on form submission.
I am using struts/websphere 6.1.
I don't want to specify each form field in validation xml.

Any help is appreciated.

If you don't want to validate each field then you'll need to do something like hook into the validation process via a custom request processor (if you're using Struts 1) or an interceptor or default validation method (Struts 2). Or do something through a filter, regardless of which Struts version.
