I am using spring 2.5.6 and am attempting to integrate commons validator so that I can have declaritive validation using validation.xml, validator-rules.xml
I have followed the instructions at the following
and have validator-rules.xml and validation.xml in place.
The problem is that the only validator that seems to trigger is depends="required". None of the others do. For example if I have depends="float" or depends="date" the validators just seem to get bypassed and the erroneous input results in java errors.
Ive searched the forums extensively but cannot find a solution. Can anybody give me some pointers?
