I have one struts form that has user information such as name and password. Most of the fields are defined as required using the validator. I want to have an abbreviated .jsp for a password reset page that uses the same form but would not include fields that are required on the more verbose .jsp page. How can I maintain the validation rules but allow them to disregard any fields not present in the abbreviated page?
