Subject RE: Check if field exists in Validator
Date Fri, 02 Feb 2007 00:11:53 GMT
What vaildator method - If you have 2 forms, why not just have 2
validator form definitions (one for each form).  Or is it you actually
have one form where for one mapping the field is mandatory, and the
other mapping the field is optional, and you wish to validate in both

Some solutions I know about are:

- in validator 1.2.0 onwards you can make use of the "extends" attribute

- using struts you can also override the getValidationKey() method (eg
see ValidatorActionForm)

- write your own custom validator

- maybe utilise the "page" attribute in the validator form mapping

If you still have problem please post the relevant struts and validator


Also perhaps searching the struts-user list will return more refined
results than google (eg

Subject: Check if field exists in Validator

Probably simple solution, but I can't find any solutions on Google.  I
have two forms whom use the same validatorMethod.  However, in one form,
a field doesn't exist, where it exists in the other form.  I want to
check if the field exists and use that value in my validation.  Does
anybody know how to fix this problem?
