Subject Re: Struts Validation

Have the action extend ActionSupport and have the class implement its own:
public validate(void).

Look at the code of ActionSupport (or JavaDoc) for how to set error
messages, if an error is set, after validate() executes, Struts2 will
assume an error has occurred and the action will return "input".

This can be used in conjunction with the xml. Sometimes code just makes
more sense.
