validation messages are printing twice. I have all properties of the form written in validation.xml and i also have a validate() method in
sample code:

ActionErrors errors = super.validate(mapping, request);
Validator v = Resources.initValidator("regionalOffersForm", this,
request.getSession().getServletContext(), request, errors, 1);
try {
} catch (org.apache.commons.validator.ValidatorException e) {

help me!!

Error messages are printing twice because you're generating them twice. If you're using the Struts Validator framework and your ActionForm extends ValidatorForm, there's no need to code a validate method at all. By calling super.validate and then writing code to validate, you're doing it twice.
