I am trying to use the validation framework in my application. I have a jsp page with one field to be validated for lenght. when i implement the maxlength validation, it doesn't work. But the "required ' field validation works...

I have tried the changing the struts.jar, validation-rules.xml etc... Still same...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

<!DOCTYPE form-validation PUBLIC
"-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Commons Validator Rules Configuration 1.1.3//EN"
<!-- An example form -->
<form name="MismatchEDIForm">
<field property="isa_date" depends="maxlength">
<arg0 key=""/>
<arg1 key="${var:maxlen}" resource="false"/>

Here are two examples that I pulled out of my validation.xml file. The first one uses both required and maxlength. The second just uses maxlength. Note the use of the "name" attribute on the arg1 tag. That might be your problem.

I am also facing similar issue. I created a custom validator to check entered special character and maxlength provided by framework.
Custom one is working but maxlength is not working. I am using struts 1.2.9 version.

Here is validation.xml:

Validator-rules.xml looks like:

Help me to identify why it is not working.

I agree. Here's the link:
