Please let me know if we can validate fields that depend on the value of another field.

For example, I want to validate newAmtbooked and newDate only when submitType equal to 'save'. I am passing submitType value from my jsp and typical values for my submitType are 'save', 'fetch', 'link' etc.. If I pass otherthan 'save' as my submitType, I want to skip the validation.

<field indexedListProperty="newAmtbooked" depends="required,double">
<arg0 key="newAmtbooked"/>

<field indexedListProperty="newDate" depends="required,date">
<arg0 key="newDate"/>

You may be able to do this using the "validWhen" rule. See the Struts Validator Guide for details.
