Subject RE: Validation of dynaActionForm too early
Date Thu, 10 Jun 2004 20:08:01 GMT
I have a question that I always thought of for such situations. It is
adviesd to have 2 action mappings as Bill suggests for such situations, one
that sets up the form with validate=false
And the next that handles the form POST. Why is that?.
In my ActionForm I look for a condition which tells me if the form was
posted or not  thereby avoiding two mappings.
But the question still remains.

Set validate="false" on the Action that forwards to the JSP containing 
the form. Set 'validate="true"' and set 'input="/myJsp.jsp"' for the 
action that processes the form.
