double validator

Description

Field Validator that checks if the double specified is within a certain range.

Parameters

You can specify either minInclusive, maxInclusive, minExclusive and maxExclusive or minInclusiveExpression, maxInclusiveExpression, minExclusiveExpression and maxExclusiveExpression as a OGNL expression, see example below. You can always try to mix params but be aware that such behaviour was not tested.

Warning Do not use ${minInclusiveExpression}, ${maxInclusiveExpression}, ${minExclusiveExpressionExpression} and ${maxExclusive} as an expression as this will turn into infinitive loop!

Examples

    <!-- Plain Validator Syntax -->
    <validator type="double">
        <param name="fieldName">percentage</param>
        <param name="minInclusive">20.1</param>
        <param name="maxInclusive">50.1</param>
        <message>Age needs to be between ${minInclusive} and ${maxInclusive} (inclusive)</message>
