I have a clarification with configuring bean validation for one scenario. Below is my compound constraint

@Target({ FIELD })
@Constraint(validatedBy = { EmpIdValidator.class })
@NotNull(message = "Id cannot be null")
@Range(min = 0, max = 99, message = "Invalid EmpId Range")
public @interface ValidEmpId {

  String message() default "Id does not exits";

  Class<?>[] groups() default {};

  Class<? extends Payload>[] payload() default {};

EmpValidator.isValid method
  public boolean isValid(final Long id,
      final ConstraintValidatorContext validatorContext) {
    // query db and check the validity, for now just do plain validation
    if ((id != null) && (id > 20) && (id < 80)) {
      return true;
    return false;

when i tested this setup, my bean is getting validated properly but the sequence is getting changed everytime,
- it is getting validated with both Range and EmpIdValidator above valid method interchanging.

How do I specify this in a proper sequence so that the validation occur in this order.
- NotNull
- Range
- EmpIdValidator

I am able to execute order properly this if I don't create compound constraint and directly specify the validations on the field directly, but I am supposed to re-use this validations in many pages. So, the only solution for me is to use compound constraint.

Can you please suggest how do I specify the sequence on above ValidEmpId to get problem solved?
