Inside submit Id click i have a ajaxSubmit. Outside i have a validate(). My validate works fine with just jquery.validate.min.js import. But then when i included this ajaxSubmit in submit click function and imported jquery.form.min.js my validate() just wouldnt work and without the field validations my action gets submitted and returns exceptions since validations arent done. If i just remove the jquery.form.min.js validate() works just fine and shows ajaxSubmit is invalid and property doesnt exists. Now that I have included no debug error messages but validate() wouldnt work.
