Commons Validator Wiki

The home page for the validator wiki

Commons Validator is an input validation component devised (originally) by David Winterfeldt as an addon for the Struts framework. It's functionality has since been split so that validator can serve as the basis for a independant component and is now part of Jakarta Commons.

Initially this wiki will serve both Struts validator and Commons Validator users.
