Hey guys,

I was wondering if it was possible to validate a group if a field had a specific value. Something like this:

Code:
public class User
{
   @NotBlank
   public String type;
   
   @NotBlank( group = AdminType.class )
   public String address;
   @NotBlank( group = AdminType.class )
   public String city;
   @NotBlank( group = AdminType.class )
   public String state;
}


And, say, if type == "admin", then I'd like the AdminType.class to be validated along with the default group.

Is something like that possible?

Thanks!

Evan

Hi Evan,

as per standard Bean Validation this is not possible. You have to call the right groups yourself. Using Hibernate Validator you can use the @GroupSequenceProvider feature. This allows you to redefine the default group of an entity based on its state. Check the online documentation for more information - http://docs.jboss.org/hibernate/validat ... roup-class

Hardy,

That looks like it will work for me! Thanks!
