Subject Re: Validation on An optional field that if supplied passes a validation
Date Wed, 26 May 2004 13:20:09 GMT
If you're using this from Struts, the FieldChecks methods only run the
validation if the value is supplied so using just email will work for
optional fields (use required and email for non-optional fields).  

If you're using this in a non-Struts app you need to front EmailValidator
with your own method that only runs the validation when the value is not
null similar to FieldChecks.  We're currently working on adding fully
functional validators so you won't have to do this in the future.
