Subject Re: URL validation with struts???
Date Tue, 15 Jul 2003 14:03:59 GMT
Hi all,
How abt throwing MalformedURLException in the service method inside action class??
Than no need to do validation in action form??
Is it correct??

1) Use a regular expression to check that the url fits the pattern you are looking for (here's
a good tutorial on regexes: You
can do this directly with the validator framework if you're using it, or later from the action.
2) Open a or java.nio connection to that url to check that it is valid. Look into
File and/or InputStream for more info on how to do this.

You should never put any logic in the form bean itself (it should remain a plain dumb form
bean). Put this code in a library and make a call to it from your action.

If education is too expensive, try ignorance.
