Subject RE: [veltools] struts+validator error keys Was: commons validator elements
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2003 20:25:58 GMT
Ok.  I have figured out why I am not getting any error messages.
My toolbox is not loading up.  And I am not getting any crazy errors.
I am seeing this in my log file:

2003-04-01 15:39:19  Velocity   [info] No toolbox entry in configuration.

That's the only thing that tells me my toolbox isn't working.

Besides this in the web.xml:


And putting the toolbox.xml file in WEB-INF I don't know what else
I should be doing to get it to startup.  It _used_ to.  Any idea on
why it would stop working?  There must be something I have done, me
being such a toolbox.

did you check the archives for this list?
i'm pretty sure i sent a long example email some time back.

you should be using the ErrorsTool to deal with these.  if you are, then you
should be doing something like:

#foreach( $e in $errors.foobar )
<span class="error">$e</span>

where "foobar" is the name of the field being validated.  if you do not wish
to display field validation errors individually, you can always just do:

#foreach( $e in $errors.all )
<span class="error">$e</span>

> You get the idea.  Where do they come from.

with Struts, it's my understanding that all ActionError instances go in the
ActionErrors object for the request.  when using Validator, then the
ActionError objects associated with a field being validated should be put
into ActionErrors using the fieldname as the key.
