Struts 2 Annotation based Validation example

09:17

In this example we will see how to use Annotation based validation in Struts 2.

1. Create a Struts Application

Please download this Struts 2 Validation example to create web application

2. Create an Action class (UserAction.java)

package com.pretech;

import com.opensymphony.xwork2.ActionSupport;
import com.opensymphony.xwork2.validator.annotations.RequiredStringValidator;
import com.opensymphony.xwork2.validator.annotations.StringLengthFieldValidator;
import com.opensymphony.xwork2.validator.annotations.ValidatorType;

public class UserAction extends ActionSupport {
    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
    private String name;

    public String getName() {
        return name;
    }
    @RequiredStringValidator(type = ValidatorType.FIELD, message = "Name Should not be blank", key = "errors.required")
    @StringLengthFieldValidator(type = ValidatorType.FIELD, message = "Name should contain min of 4 characters and max 15 charcters", minLength = "4", maxLength = "15", trim = true)
    public void setName(String name) {
        this.name = name;
    }
    public String execute() {
        setName("Hello " + name + " Welcome to Struts 2");
        return SUCCESS;
    }

}

3. Test validations
