Annotation Type Validation


Deprecated. Since Struts 2.1 because it isn't necessary anymore

@Target(value=TYPE)
@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
public @interface Validation

This annotation has been deprecated since 2.1 as its previous purpose, to define classes that support annotation validations, is no longer necessary.

Annotation usage:

The Validation annotation must be applied at Type level.

Annotation parameters:

Parameter Required Default Notes
validations yes  

Example code: An Annotated Interface

 
 @Validation()
 public interface AnnotationDataAware {

     void setBarObj(Bar b);

     Bar getBarObj();

     @RequiredFieldValidator(message = "You must enter a value for data.")
     @RequiredStringValidator(message = "You must enter a value for data.")
     void setData(String data);

     String getData();
 }
 
 

Example code: An Annotated Class

 
 @Validation()
 public class SimpleAnnotationAction extends ActionSupport {

     @RequiredFieldValidator(type = ValidatorType.FIELD, message = "You must enter a value for bar.")
     @IntRangeFieldValidator(type = ValidatorType.FIELD, min = "6", max = "10", message = "bar must be between ${min} and ${max}, current value is ${bar}.")
     public void setBar(int bar) {
         this.bar = bar;
     }

     public int getBar() {
         return bar;
     }

     @Validations(
             requiredFields =
                     {@RequiredFieldValidator(type = ValidatorType.SIMPLE, fieldName = "customfield", message = "You must enter a value for field.")},
             requiredStrings =

                     { @UrlValidator(type = ValidatorType.SIMPLE, fieldName = "hreflocation", message = "You must enter a value for email.")},
