Bean Validation 1.1 added a @javax.validation.executable.ValidateOnExecution annotation meant to mark classes or methods whose method executions should be validated. This is in some ways quite synonymous with Spring's @Validated, but with broader implications.

@Validated is for classes and parameters only. @ValidateOnExecution applies to packages, classes, methods, and constructors (but not parameters). So, even if I configured the MethodValidationPostProcessor to look for @ValidateOnExecution by calling setValidatedAnnotationType it wouldn't match cases where the package or method was annotated.

Out of the box, if a MethodValidationPostProcessor is defined it seems like Spring should enable method validation if any of the following conditions are met:

  • The package is annotated @Validated or @ValidateOnExecution
  • The class is annotated @Validated or @ValidateOnExecution
  • The constructor is annotated @Validated or @ValidateOnExecution (assuming Spring is responsible for the instantiation of the bean)
  • The method is annotated @Validated or @ValidateOnExecution
  • The parameter is annotated @Validated (to preserve current functionality)

This will necessitate:

  • Expanding the @Target of @Validated to include packages, constructors, and methods
  • Changing MethodPostProcessor to look for both annotations on the package, class, or method instead of just @Validated on the class
  • Changing bean instantiation procedures to look for both annotations on the constructor

Affects: 4.0 M1

Note: In BV 1.1, this:

@GroupSequence({Group1.class, Group2.class})
public class Whatever {

Is equivalent to this in Spring:

@Validate({Group1.class, Group2.class})
public class Whatever {

What I don't know is whether a BV implementation like Hibernate Validator picks this up and uses it when Validator#validate is called. I think probably not. It should be tested, but assuming I'm right this change should be made as well.

Any chance to get this in Spring 4.0.0.Final to complete support for BV 1.1?
