Subject Re: Struts vs Jsp/javascript..
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2002 17:08:20 GMT
The validator framework can be used to generate client-side validation
JavaScript for Struts forms.  However, you should *always* redo the
validations at the server side -- it is not safe programming to assume
that the user has JavaScript enabled.

The way I look at it, client-side validation is there to improve the user
interface by reacting more quickly to user errors.  It's not something
that the server-side application should rely on.
