I am pretty sure that the Validator framework was added to Struts with the 1.1 release. If that is the case then you could try to integrate the framework yourself, but it seems easier to just implement validation in the validate method on the forms. You can create validation methods in a utility class. In some ways I find this much easier than the Validator framework. Do you need client-side validation?
