Hello, I'm using Spring to manage some forms and, until now, when the user introduced an incorrect value for a field (i.e. an invalid user), I sended him to another jsp. Now I won't to send him to the same jsp whith a message saying "you were wrong..." or something like that. I put this code in my SimpleFormController:

I expected that would make this to work correctly, it only redirect to te jsp, but no errors apperars.
How would i make this??
Thanks a lot.

create a validator annd inject that to you controller
<bean id="yourcontroller" class="YourController" >
<property name="validator" ref="yourValidatorRef" >
<bean id="youValidatorRef" class="YourValidatorClass" />

and call <form:errors path="*" />
here form tag is springs form tag.

for more information refer Spring Reference document, on how to create validators

Thanks for the reply, but i'm not talking about validation. I already have a validator that tests the values looking for empty or whitespaced values, I'm talking about to compare a value with one in the database, and if them are differents, then show the error.

I agree. Here's the link:
