Re: JAX-RS and @ValidateOnExecution

Pavel Bucek

Do we have BeanValidation expert here? ;) Gunnar?

I believe the implementation should skip the method validation when
@ValidateOnExecution(type = ExecutableType.NONE)
is on the method / class. But what about when
@ValidateOnExecution(type = ExecutableType.CONSTRUCTORS)
is on the resource method?

Seems like Jersey (and sorry for bringing implementation details here, but I believe it is relevant) was using @ValidateOnExecution only for deciding whether to validate return value of that method. When I fixed it, other tests are not passing and I'm not sure what should be the correct behavior in that case.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Christian,

seems to be a Jersey bug.

Hey everyone,

I've a question regarding JAX-RS and @ValidateOnExecution. Please have a look at the following code:

  @ValidateOnExecution(type = ExecutableType.NONE)
  public String method( @QueryParam("q") @NotNull String query ) {
    return "Resource method was invoked!";

What is the expected outcome for a request which doesn't contain any query parameter and therefore violates the @NotNull constraint?

From my understanding the use of @ValidateOnExecution disables validation and therefore the resource method must be called even if there is no query parameter in the request URL. That's how RESTEasy handles this case.

But Jersey seems to completely ignore the @ValidateOnExecution annotation in this example. Therefore Jersey validates the query parameter and returns "400 Bad Request" without invoking the resource method.

Any thoughts on this?
