why is it when the validator sees an invalid date it pukes a stack trace in the log? From the view, everything behaved as expected...but I'd hate to think everytime some user entered a bad date we'd get this massive stack trace in the log.


org.apache.commons.validator.GenericTypeValidator 02/40/1977
TRAS0014I: The following exception was logged:
java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "02/40/1977"

You may want to tweak the logging level for org.apache.commons. If you set it to "FATAL" you may be able to get rid of this stuff.
