Yes, Frank. Believe it or not, I know what u mean and I agree with u. ;)

However, in this case, that would mean I'd have to rebuild views (JSP) which
were tightly coupled to Struts tags/forms (time constraints at that time)
and that would take a while.

Indeed, for the moment, I'd decided to use plain JavaScript, but I'd really
like to use the "behaviours" solutions (it's definitely better, more robust
and powerful).

It's sad how this tiny details can become so important at a given time.

I remember a Servlet presentation framework I used for previous projects...
PAJES... it wouldn't complain about this kind of things and had some cool
features. These days, I'm kind of missing it...


P.S.: anybody else? alternatives?

Solution: Don't use the Struts tags. :)

Seriously, people tend to forget (or don't know to begin with) that they are
NOT required to use Struts.

Alternatively, limit the input via Javascript as an onKeyDown event handler.
