    Problems validating rich:calendar

    radu radu Newbie

      Hi !

      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:


      (works fine)

      (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...

      Regards,
      Radu

            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.
