All those methods, which are there in validator-rules.xml, would be written in the page as it is. Therefore, the size of the page would definitely increase. So, what I wanna suggest is to make a js file and place all those methods in there. Make a link to that file in jsp page. And remove the the functions from validator-rules.xml, but don't remove the name because the name is needed for callback. Stop the code from rendering those methods in every page, in which the validator is used.
validator-rules.xml before removal
validator-rules.xml after removal
It would work like a charm. [ October 05, 2005: Message edited by: Adeel Ansari ]
