Subject RE: Question about adding ActionErrors
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2002 06:27:10 GMT
    We are validating against the database in the LoginAction through a
business delegate. I think the validation in the form would be limited to
checking for null or spaces...

    A related question.

    In my action, I use saveErrors. How are the 'errors' saved inside the
form ?

Subject: Question about adding ActionErrors


i have a LoginForm ( ValidatorForm ), which will validate if username and
password is entered. Ok, but after this i have to probe if the entered
username/password combination really exists in the database.

My question is where to perform the database-check ... in the LoginForm by
overriding the validate method or in the requested Action ( / ) ?

It seems to me a litte bit confusing that a ValidatorForm should make a
database-connect instead of the Action.

Any help would be appreciated.
