    Validation annotation working on getter but not on property

    jonathan.man Newbie

      Hi everyone.

       

      I'm experimenting with JSF2, and wanted to give a shot at validation by annotation.

      I can make it work by annotatiing the getter, but not the property.

      Examples on the net all works with property annotations.

      I'm curious as to why I can't get it to work.

      I'm using hibernate validator.

       

      Here is my setup :

      Eclipse Indigo 3.7.2

      jdk1.7

       

       

      My Pom :

      My Sample page :

       

      <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

      <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

          xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core"

          xmlns:h="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html"

          xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets">

      <h:head />

      <h:body>

          <h:form>

              <h:panelGrid columns="3">

                  <h:outputText value="Name :" />

                  <h:inputText id="inputName"

                               value="#{someBean.name}">

                  </h:inputText>

                  <h:message for="inputName" id="mess1" />

       

                  <h:outputText value="Surname" />

                  <h:inputText id="inputSurname"

                              required="true"

                              requiredMessage="Name mandatory" value="#{someBean.surname}"

                              validatorMessage="Invalid surname">

                      <f:validateLength minimum="5" maximum="10" />

                  </h:inputText>

                  <h:message for="inputSurname" id="mess2" />

       

                  <h:commandButton value="Do Something" actionListener="#{someBean.doSomething}" />

              </h:panelGrid>

              <h:messages id="allMess" />

          </h:form>

      </h:body>

      </html>

       

       

      And my sample bean :

       

      package test.validation;

       

      import javax.faces.bean.ManagedBean;

      import javax.faces.bean.RequestScoped;

      import javax.validation.constraints.NotNull;

      import javax.validation.constraints.Size;

       

      @ManagedBean

      @RequestScoped

      public class SomeBean {

         

          @NotNull(message="Name Mandatory")

          @Size(min=5, max=10, message="Invalid name")

          private String fName = null;

          //@Size(min=5, max=10, message="Invalid surname")

          private String fSurname = null;

         

          public void doSomething() {

              System.out.println("Doing something - this = " + this.toString());

              System.out.println("Doing something - " + this.fName + "/" + this.fSurname);

          }

         

          public String getName() {

              return this.fName;

          }

         

          public void setName(String pName) {

              this.fName = pName;

          }

          public String getSurname() {

              return this.fSurname;

          }

          public void setSurname(String pSurname) {

              this.fSurname = pSurname;

          }

      }

       

      Any idea?
