If domain object level validation constraint is specified and some custom validator marks explicitly an object field as invalid (instead of default global object):


SpringValidatorAdapter doesn't check for this option and creates FieldError for marked field but rejected value is not field value but domain object itselves. Think this is a bug. For now I use this fix, but I'm not sure if this covers all possible cases:

Object invalidValue = violation.getInvalidValue();
if (field.contains(".") && !field.contains("[]")) {
    // Possibly a bean constraint with property path: retrieve the actual property value.
    // However, explicitly avoid this for "address[]" style paths that we can't handle.
    invalidValue = bindingResult.getRawFieldValue(field);
} else if (cd instanceof ConstraintDescriptorImpl) {
    ConstraintDescriptorImpl<?> cdImpl = (ConstraintDescriptorImpl<?>) cd;
    if (cdImpl.getElementType().equals(ElementType.TYPE)) {
        BeanWrapperImpl beanWrapper = new BeanWrapperImpl(invalidValue);
        invalidValue = beanWrapper.getPropertyValue(field);

This looks like the same fundamental issue as outlined in #14876, and should have been fixed along with it (in recent 3.2.2 snapshots).
