Subject [jira] Commented: (STR-2119) Return appropriate status code when form validation fails
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2007 22:09:27 GMT


Paul Benedict commented on STR-2119:

It's almost worth considering. In my Struts applications, if I have to retrieve data through
GET, my validation errors go to a 404 page. I consider invalid GET input to be equal to a
Resource Not Found (404). Only if I am actually collecting user input (POST), will I use a
standard input error page. 

I am willing to consider the idea that a validation error on a GET can trigger a 404 error.
The 404 error can either be added to the CRP or as an internal action.
