Hi,

In struts1 how to check whether the entered email id is already exists in database or not. If it already exists we have to display an error message saying that the email id already exists. Can anyone help. Here i had attached my code.

jsp code
-----------

<!DOCTYPE html>
<%@page contentType="text/html"%>
<%@page pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>

<%@ taglib uri="http://struts.apache.org/tags-bean" prefix="bean" %>
