I am using Struts 1.1. I am to do some validations in my form for this i have written validation method.

In my struts-config.xml validation = "false"

As per my requirement i have to write two validations methods in form bean. (one is for errors and one is for warnings). I am calling both the methods one by one. One methods perform required validations and add to errors. again i call send method to checks for warnings and add in errors. both the method are are working fine.

Only problem i am facing is JSP page display only errors from from last methods (which ever i call second).

Code is

//Checking warnings
ActionErrors errorsWarning = myForm.validateWarning(mapping,(HttpServletRequest) request);

if (!errorsWarning.isEmpty()) {
saveErrors((HttpServletRequest) request, errorsWarning);

//Checking error
ActionErrors errors = myForm.validate(mapping,(HttpServletRequest) request);
if (!errors.isEmpty()) {
saveErrors((HttpServletRequest) request, errors);

Is there any way so i could display both errors in my JSP

Thank you

Change the signature of your validateWarning method so that it accepts an ActionErrors object as a parameter. Then have the validateWarning method add any new errors to this ActionErrors object rather than creating a new one. Then just make sure you call validateWarning after the validate method and pass the object you get from validate into the validateWarning Method.
