Struts2:Action-validation.xml

Hi,

I am using Java-Struts2 framework and I want to use validation.xml for my Action Class but I am getting into validation problems where in even after the validation fails,the action is called.
Another problem is how do i put 'required field' validation for an interger field so that along with some minimum and maximum value validation for the field "Age",I should be able to put a second validation as well that the field "Age" must not be left blank.Can anyone please guide me?

below is my Action Class (Employee.java)


Below is my Employee-validation.xml



My struts.xml is as below:



My input form is as below:




On the Age field ,if I put a string or if leave the field as blank ,the validation is shown on the form but I get the below error,so my questions are :

1.Why is the action called at all if validation is not successful ?
2.How to put multiple validations (required and value limitations on the interger field Age) at the same time.

Error:

Please be patient. We are all volunteers on this site. You can see in the error message:



that Struts is looking for a setAge method that takes a String for an argument wheras your action takes an int. I know I've seen this problem before, but I'm struggling to find the correct way to address it. Does the range validator still work if you change the type in your action to String?

Thanks Joe.

Is it a known problem in Struts ? Answers for your suggestions and questions:

1.The range validator did not work when I changed the type to String in Action .

2.But when I added the following overloaded methods,then everything worked without exception.Strange but can't understand why is this string method being called.Are you aware of any inside details?

Hi folks,

I am also facing the problem, Strut2 does not validating the fields in the form. I have a customer form having four fields to validate.

But it does not validate if i do not enter any data in these fields. Any idea why its not validating.

I have another question: Is it a good way to validate it through java script or using the struts validator for all kind of forms??

Thanks
