I am trying to validate a rich:calendar for not null input using <rich:beanValidator />, but i am not able to validate for null inputs.
For example in my constraits.xml file, i validate getter for calendar:
"<"constraint annotation="javax.validation.constraints.Past"/> (works fine)
"<"constraint annotation="javax.validation.constraints.NotNull" /> (not work)
<constraintannotation="org.hibernate.validator.constraints.NotEmpty"/> (not work)
Those last two constraint did not worked because "DateTime" data type dose not recognize them ? (first of them as far as i know is used for numeric values and second one for strings).
There is such a constraint for date time data type ? Could i validate somehow using constraints written in xml file for not null inputs ?
I am forced to used required="true" in xhtml for this kind of validation (not null) for rich:calendar (if i am using hibernate validator) ?
Please if you have an idea help me...
It's standard JSF behavior. Examine validateValue method in UIInput standard JSF class which our input components extends. If you not defined required - validators even will not be called for empty value - it's just marked as valid. We corrected this for a few standard components by overriding this method - but calendar component uses standard UIInput validation mechanism.
I starded internal discussion on this weird problem and will update you with results.
Currently seems you have to use required attribute.
Thanks a lot for the message.
I will try using validateValue method.
Also i will keep an eye on this forum for new results.
