I think the URL validation should be done in the form's validate() method.

1) Use a regular expression to check that the url fits the pattern you are
looking for (here's a good tutorial on regexes: You can do this
directly with the validator framework if you're using it, or later from the
2) Open a or java.nio connection to that url to check that it is
valid. Look into File and/or InputStream for more info on how to do this.

You should never put any logic in the form bean itself (it should remain a
plain dumb form bean). Put this code in a library and make a call to it from
your action.

If education is too expensive, try ignorance.
