Subject [jira] Commented: (STR-2119) Return appropriate status code when form validation fails
Date Wed, 04 Jul 2007 07:32:27 GMT


Eric Jain commented on STR-2119:

404 is a very specific error and may not be appropriate in all (or most) cases where validation
fails! 400 on the other hand can be seen as a generic "something was wrong with your request"
response. If I could tell Struts what codes to return in what cases that would of course be
great. But otherwise a generic error code that implies a mistake on the client side seems
better than the 200 "all is fine" response I get now, for the reasons given above.

> When redisplaying a form after validation has indicated a failure, a status code
> such as "400 Bad Request" should be used in place of "200 OK". This simplifies
> testing, and is important for applications that need to interact with the web
> interface of an application directly.
