Subject Add Web Service to Struts Web App
Date Sat, 11 Aug 2007 03:45:33 GMT


I've been googling and looking at the user mailing list if I add web service
to a struts based application, but didn't find my answers. Currently I am
developing a struts based application with Struts 1.3.8 with Struts
validator framework. I've implemented business layer and data layer.

In future, I need to integrate my app with other applications such as portal
using web service. Therefore, I would like to think ahead on how I can
integrate since I've not worked with web service before.

By googling and reading some of the articles, I found out that web service
can call struts actions.  My real concern is the data validation. 
1. Can I use Struts validator framework?
2. If not, do I need to do validation at data layer? 
3. If I need to do validation at data layer, can I use Commons Validator ? 
4. If I use Commons Validator, should I use it in both presentation layer
and data layer.

Commons Validator was a part of Struts Validator. I'm totally lost!

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
