How to validate textboxes in a jsp page like the asp page of in .NET

I have a jsp page with three textboxes , i need to validate if they are empty or not

Some sites suggest javascript.

There is a button in the form which transfers the values from the three textboxes onto a servlet. So if i leave the three textboxes as blank , then when i press the submit button i should see messages (in the jsp page itself) that the three fields are required?

How do i do it without javascript?

If this were 1998, you'd submit the page and have the page re-displayed with the error messages. But this is 2012 and you'd use JavaScript.

Of course, you still need to validate on the server. Never assume that client-side validation has executed.
