Default Validation using Validation Framework

Hi Experts,

  I am facing a problem with Validation Framework. Could you solve my problem. I want to validate a field in which the entered value should not be a negative number.
For Example: if i enter -1 or -2 it should give a validation message. Please give me solution with an example. I tried with min but no use. Thanks in Advance.

hi kalyan,

for the same thing i have worked on this couple of weeks back. you need to implement u r own validation rule for this negative integer not to accept . for that u need to write code in validation-rues.xml file,validation.xml and java class for supporting condition. here is the code for u r reference.

   <validator name="myNegativeIf"
                      classname="com.oomc.servicing.icar.web.validator.M yFieldChecks"




 <field property="contract.contractDefault.thresholdAmount "

                <arg0 key="label.contract.threshholdAmount"/>


   // Negative number validation added by vimal 12/18/2007
    public static boolean myNegativeIf(
       Object bean,
       ValidatorAction va,
       Field field,
       ActionErrors errors,
       HttpServletRequest request ) {

       String value = ValidatorUtil.getValueAsString(bean, field.getProperty());
        int value1=0;
        value1= Integer.parseInt(value);
         catch (Exception e) {

      // System.out.println("Value if int not negative is "+value1);
  // System.out.println("value = " + value + "XXXXX");

       //String sProperty2 = field.getVarValue("secondProperty");
       //String value2 = ValidatorUtil.getValueAsString(bean, sProperty2);
  // System.out.println("value2 = " + value2 + "YYYYY");

  if (!GenericValidator.isBlankOrNull(value)) {

               if (value1 < 0) {

                  errors.add(field.getKey(),Resources.getActionError (request, va, field));
                  return false;

          } catch (Exception e) {
             errors.add(field.getKey(),Resources.getActionError (request, va, field));
             return false;

       return true;


Thanks& Regards,
