Subject Code works in editor, but not through Tomcat - Please help!
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2003 18:45:44 GMT
Hi all.  This one's kind of urgent because its holding up the rest of my

I'm not sure I understand why this is happening. I have a bean that I use
for form validation.  When I test the code locally using an editor and hard
coding variable values, the code runs perfect and all information is
validated (i.e. check zip code length =5, check zip code is a number, check
credit card number is a number, check all fields are filled in etc").
However, when I try to validate my form through Tomcat I keep getting errors
on the same fields over and over.

Any idea why this would be happening?  I have posted my code below just in
case, but since it worked when I ran it in the editor, I do not think the
problem is my code.  The only thing I can think of is that somehow,
something screwy is happening when my bean properties are being set....

Thanks in advance!

Errors (only get these over Tomcat):

I enter 12345 as zip code, and I get "Please enter a valid zip code." error
message (The second error only comes up when I try a non numeric zip so that
part works ok). Input type is text and bean variable is string.
The Code:
	     if (PostalCode.equals("") || PostalCode.length() != 5 )
	        errors.put("PostalCode","Please enter a valid zip code.");
	      try {
	        int x = Integer.parseInt(PostalCode);
	      } catch (NumberFormatException e) {
	        errors.put("PostalCode","Please enter a valid 5 digit zip

I enter 12/03 for Expiration date, and keep getting invalid message.  Input
type is text, and bean variable in bean is a String.
The Code:
	if (Expires.equals(""))
	       errors.put("Expires","Please enter expiration date as

I try for both email and retype email.  Input type is text
and bean variable is string.
Here is the code:
    if (Email.equals("") || (Email.indexOf("@") <= 0))
        errors.put("Email","Please enter a valid email address.");
    else if (!Email.equals(retypeemail))
        errors.put("Email","The emails entered do not match.");
        Email = "";
