IMHO AnnotationValidationConfigurationBuilder should yield, in case of VisitorFieldValidator, the entire hierarchy of validators. For example in the following use case, how many validator configurations did you expect (I'd say 2)?: private class InnerClass { private InnerBean bean; @VisitorFieldValidator public InnerBean getBean() { return bean; } } private class InnerBean { private String name; @RequiredStringValidator public String getName() { return name; } public void setName(String name) { this.name = name; } } > client validation isn't generated when using a VisitorFieldValidator annotation > ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- > > Key: WW-3532 > URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-3532 > Project: Struts 2 > Issue Type: Bug > Affects Versions: 2.2.1 > Environment: jboss 5, struts2-core-2.2.1.jar > Reporter: David G > Priority: Minor > > When using a VisitorFieldValidator in an action, the generated Javascript doesn't validate fields on the referenced POJO, i.e. the example I have below would only generate: > > I have two current workarounds, but they're a bit of a pain: > 1) Using XML validation instead of annotations. > 2) Not to use the VisitorFieldValidator model, and instead have the form fields referenced directly in the Action class. > Here's the code I've been using (a trimmed down version of it anyway ;-) ) > AccountManagementAction.java: > public class AccountManagementAction extends ActionSupport > { > private Account account; > public Account getAccount() > { > return account; > } > @VisitorFieldValidator > public void setAccount(Account account) > { > this.account = account; > } > ... > } > Account.java: > public class Account > { > private String username; > public String getUsername() > { > return username; > } > @Validations( > requiredStrings = @RequiredStringValidator(trim = true, message = "Required"), > stringLengthFields = @StringLengthFieldValidator( > minLength = "2", maxLength = "10", trim = true, > message = "This must be between ${minLength} and ${maxLength} letters"), > regexFields = @RegexFieldValidator(expression = "^[0-9a-zA-Z]*$", > message = "Only plain letters and numbers are allowed") > ) > public void setUsername(String username) > { > this.username = username; > } > } > registration.jsp: > <%@page contentType="text/html" pageEncoding="UTF-8"%> > <%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags" %> > "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> > > > > > > > > > > > -- This message is automatically generated by JIRA. - You can reply to this email to add a comment to the issue online.
