EmailValidator checks that a given String field, if not empty, is a valid email address.

The regular expression used to validate that the string is an email address is:


You can also specify expression, caseSensitive and trim params as a OGNL expression, see the example below.


  • fieldName - The field name this validator is validating. Required if using Plain-Validator Syntax otherwise not required

Do not use ${regexExpression}, ${caseSensitiveExpression} and ${trimExpression} as an expression as this will turn into infinitive loop!
