Hi,
I wanted to call a javascript function to validate login page from a servlet.
or I want to display an error message in servlet itself
is that possible?
Please help
bye

You can't use JavaScript to validate in the servlet - JS is executed in the browser, while servlets run in the server. Thus the two can't be mixed.

Remember that servlets and JSP are just server-side mechanisms to send HTML (and Javascript) to the browser. So you can easily inlcude any Javascript you like in the output you generate. Be aware that the Javascript executes on the client, not the server.

I would like to suggest Commons Validator - Validator for both javascript/client-side validation as well as server-side.
