    date Range vialidation

    Laurent Morissette Newbie

      Hello fellow Seamers :)


      I need to validate that a certain date type field is within secified range.



      I made a custom Validator-based annotation but I can't seem to make it work correctly so any advices would be greatly appreciated.


      FYI here are my validator Elements (code):


      My annotation:


      import static java.lang.annotation.ElementType.FIELD;
      import static java.lang.annotation.ElementType.METHOD;
      import static java.lang.annotation.RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME;
      
      import java.lang.annotation.Documented;
      import java.lang.annotation.Retention;
      import java.lang.annotation.Target;
      
      import org.hibernate.validator.ValidatorClass;
      
      @ValidatorClass(DateRangeValidator.class) 
      @Target({ METHOD, FIELD})
      @Documented
      @Retention(RUNTIME)
      public @interface DateRange {
       String after() default "";
       String before() default "";
       String message() default ("validator.daterange");
       
      
      
      }
      
      



      The Validator itself


      
      import java.io.Serializable;
      import java.util.Date;
      
      
      import org.hibernate.validator.Validator;
      import org.jboss.seam.ScopeType;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Scope;
      
      @Name("daterangevalidator")
      @Scope(ScopeType.CONVERSATION)
      public class DateRangeValidator implements Validator<DateRange>, Serializable  {
      
           /**
            * 
            */
           private static final long serialVersionUID = 7958814426292792622L;
           private long after=0l;
           private long before=0l;
           public void initialize(DateRange parameters) {
                after=new Long(parameters.after()).longValue();
                before=new Long(parameters.before()).longValue();
                System.out.println(after);
           }
      
           public boolean isValid(Object value ) {
                System.out.println(value);
                 long lValue=((Date)value).getTime();
                  System.out.println(lValue);
                 if(lValue<after) return false;
                 if(lValue>before) return false;
                 if((lValue>=after) &&(lValue<=before))return true;
                
                return false;
           }
      
           
      
      
      
      }
      
      



      actually, the validator is never called


      Thanks in advance for your help!
