Hi Friends,

I have question normally what we do for validation of any fields in JSP we use JavaScript (Client Side) and also we do validation at server side.
It is know that some one can bypass client side validation so it is mandatory to do server side validation also but what if we call JavaScript on submit button and from there we submit action then also server side validation is required.

What am I thinking even if he disable JavaScript the user cannot submit the form. Is there any way even after that he can bypass validation.

Thanks..!!

if the submit bounded to JS. and there is no JS enable on browser then, the form submission will take place- in case you use input type=submit.

The bottom line is to simply make sure that server-side validation always takes place. Always.

I agree there should server side validation, but is there any way that user can submit the form
