Subject [jira] Created: (WW-2587) @SkipValidation not found on superclass method
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2008 20:05:10 GMT
@SkipValidation not found on superclass method

                 Key: WW-2587
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core Interceptors
            Reporter: Brad Cupit

The SkipValidation annotation is a great addition, and it worked well for me, until I used
Spring to create CGLIB proxies for my Actions. CGLIB creates a class which extends my Action
class, and the SkipValidation annotation isn't found on the CGLIB-generated proxy.

Admittedly, this is more of a problem with CGLIB, than with Struts2, however if @SkipValidation
were allowed on methods in interfaces or superclasses, my problem would be solved.

Unfortunately, the validation annotations (like @RequiredStringValidator), are found on super
classes. So the net effect is that my SkipValidation annotation is not found, but the validation
annotations are, so validation is occurring on GETs instead of just the POSTs (note: I have
an Action with two entry points: a show() method and a submit() method and show() has @SkipValidation).

use one action per url and then only always validate

Ideally, the AnnotationValidationInterceptor#doIntercept(ActionInvocation) method would check
for the SkipValidation annotation on the method being overridden. This would not only fix
the CGLIB-proxy issue, but would also allow SkipValidation to be used on interfaces and superclasses.
