struts 1.? validation

if user enters an offenceDate I want to use this validation,
<field property="offenceDate" depends="date">
<arg position="0" key="errors.chargesOffenceDate"/>
<arg position="1" name="date" key="${var:datePatternStrict}" resource="false" />

if they don't enter anything I don't need to do validation
documentation implies this could be done with requiredIf but I don't want to use because it is being deprecated

Thank you

Hello, I believe you can make your own custom validation. For instance, if the field is empty skip the validation otherwise perform the date validation.
I agree. Here's the link:
