        • 1. Re: hibernate validator in not working properly.
          Neil Richardson Newbie

          For every field that is required you must specify required\="true" on the input element eg


                          <h:inputText id="fname" size="40" value="#{userdata.fname}" required="true" >
                          <s:validate />
                          </h:inputText>
          



          This is a 'feature' of JSF (and not a problem with Hibernate Validator). If you leave a field blank then JSF completed disregards it (ie it doesn't call any converters for it and, importantly, doesn't call any validators for it). Since it doesn't call any validators then Hibernate Validator can't validate it. Empty fields are always assumed by JSF to be valid (hence it doesn't call any validators).


          The required\="true" attribute is processed by JSF during the 'Apply Request Values' phase before any converters or validators are called.
