I'm new to struts and assigned to web project using struts and ibatis.
I want to validate two input where user must put their new passwords twice, the validation used to check whether the two new password are the same.
Anyone has a clue from where i should start? do i have to use validator framework?
Any feedbacks will be fully appreciated

Why not keep it simple and use the ActionForm validate() method. Another alternative is to use JavaScript.

Closing this here and moving to Struts.

If using Struts 1.2.something (basically when they added validwhen) in the validation.xml for your form:

I've tried using manual validation, but it returned NullPointerException errors, here is the validation code

I am not sure why you are calling super.validate twice. If posisi_password_baru1 is null, then your code will throw a NullPointerException. You may want to add a check in your code. If you have a "required" check in your xml validation, then you may want to bracket your custom validation code with an " if (errs.isEmpty())" check.

Hello Henry Lowell,

I am using struts 1.2 and I have tried with the example you provide.

My code is like the following

I have three fields

Now I need to compare with new and confirpassword

I have written code like

I did not get any pop up when those two are not same. What would be the mistake in that?

Thanks for your help in advance.
