Subject RE: Validator in Struts 1.1
Date Fri, 06 Jun 2003 00:17:01 GMT
I've been emailed privately a couple of time about the commons-validator not
being able to resolve the validator dtd's internally and therefore trying to
resolve it over the internet (and being blocked by firewall restrictions)...

So I thought I should put it on the list...  I belive the information I've
given is correct, but perhaps some of the experts could confirm...  Details
are given in the email below

Hi Frederic,

The Proxy Host and Proxy port are needed if you are behind a firewall and
have a proxy server for internet access, this way Catalina can obtain the
DTD via the internet.  However this is not the ideal solution as it creates
a dependence on the jakarta site being available for it to obtain the DTD to
validate against... 

It basically was a bug in the Validator jar, however recent builds (even as
long as a month ago I think) have fixed this.  If you get a more recent
version of validator you won't need to set the proxy information, it will
resolve the DTD to be stored in the Jar itself.

Hope this helps

This happened to me too...
Defining a proxy within the Tomcat JVM using the
environment variable solved my problem...

CATALINA_OPTS=-DproxySet=true -DproxyHost=<proxy-name>


Could you explain me what shall i put in <proxy-name>
and <proxy-port> please ?

Thanks a lot, Frederic (France)
