The annotation must be applied at method level.


Parameter Required Default Notes
message yes   field error message
key no   i18n key from language specific properties file.
fieldName no    
shortCircuit no false If this validator should be used as shortCircuit.
expression yes   An OGNL expression that returns a boolean value.


@FieldExpressionValidator(message = "Default message", key = "i18n.key", shortCircuit = true, expression = "an OGNL expression")
