Hi All:

Does anybody knows what the following code in validation.xml means?

<form name="test">
<field property="travelerRows" depends="extends">

"extends" is not one of the standard validation rules that ships with struts. It looks like someone working on this application before you has written a custom validation rule called "extends". If you look in the validation-rules.xml file, you should be able to see more information about it.
