Iam a beginner. Can anyone help me to how to do validation framework. If i use validate() method in ActionForm as in my application all the actions are going to same action class nad populating thru the same actionform. When i need to validate employeeid field as all fields are validating in the same actionform its validating not only employeeid and all other fields also. So i need to validate values depends on the action going on. Can any one help how to do this.
