Class MethodValidationInterceptor

  • java.lang.Object
    • org.springframework.validation.beanvalidation.MethodValidationInterceptor
  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Advice, Interceptor, MethodInterceptor

    public class MethodValidationInterceptor
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements MethodInterceptor
    An AOP Alliance MethodInterceptor implementation that delegates to a JSR-303 provider for performing method-level validation on annotated methods.

    Applicable methods have JSR-303 constraint annotations on their parameters and/or on their return value (in the latter case specified at the method level, typically as inline annotation).

    E.g.: public @NotNull Object myValidMethod(@NotNull String arg1, @Max(10) int arg2)

    Validation groups can be specified through Spring's Validated annotation at the type level of the containing target class, applying to all public service methods of that class. By default, JSR-303 will validate against its default group only.

    As of Spring 5.0, this functionality requires a Bean Validation 1.1 provider.

      • invoke

        public java.lang.Object invoke(MethodInvocation invocation)
                                throws java.lang.Throwable
        Description copied from interface: MethodInterceptor
        Implement this method to perform extra treatments before and after the invocation. Polite implementations would certainly like to invoke Joinpoint.proceed().
        Specified by:
        invoke in interface MethodInterceptor
        invocation - the method invocation joinpoint
        the result of the call to Joinpoint.proceed(); might be intercepted by the interceptor
        java.lang.Throwable - if the interceptors or the target object throws an exception
      • determineValidationGroups

        protected java.lang.Class<?>[] determineValidationGroups(MethodInvocation invocation)
        Determine the validation groups to validate against for the given method invocation.

        Default are the validation groups as specified in the Validated annotation on the containing target class of the method.
