 Post subject: Unable to setGroup Sequence on Validation groups

Im trying to implement both validation groups and group sequence on the same form object, but Im having a problem whereby the group sequence is being ignored.

Suppose I have defined the group sequence on my form object class as follows :

@GroupSequence({User.class, Level1.class, Level2.class})
public class User {

@Min(value = 11111,groups={Step1.class,Level2.class})
@Pattern(regexp = "[0-9]{5}",groups={Step1.class,Level1.class})
private String name;

private String employeeId;

public String getName() {
return name;

public void setName(String name) {
this.name= name;

public String getEmployeeId() {
return employeeId;

public void setEmployeeId(String employeeId) {
this.employeeId = employeeId;

Inside my controller class, I validate only for the Step1 group
Validator validator = Validation.buildDefaultValidatorFactory().getValidator();
ConstraintViolation<User> constraint = validator.vaidate(user,Step1.class);

Suppose the User object's name field was set to "a", I would thus be expecting only the @Pattern validation to be performed, which is according to my group sequence defined. However, the constaint object returned displayed both the @Min and @Pattern errors.

Any help would be appreciated.
