I am planning to use commons validator and i have trouble getting to use it. I have my own frame work to follow the MVC architecture (i am not using struts). I have included the jar file in my project class path and have the config files ready.. I am not sure how to use the resources and initialize the validator and how to use it. i have tried following the info that i could find on the internet but unable to get it properly...... hope someone can explain in a step by step process of how to use it.

Thankyou in advance
