Bean Validation in Wicket

Posted by    |       Bean Validation

People following our work and vision on Bean Validation know that the ultimate goal is to get the ecosystem of Java frameworks to natively integrate Bean Validation where it makes sense. A particularly important area is the the presentation layer that should call Bean Validation to validate the values to be put in the domain model.

This is a feature we have added in JSF 2 and I am happy to see the model being embraced by other frameworks. A new addition to the game is Wicket: Zenika has created a project to integrate Bean Validation in Wicket just like we did for JSF. It's all explained here.

If I may, my next wish is to get rid of this annoying lonely line:

personForm.add(new JSR303FormValidator());

Just get it to work out of the box :) Aside from this detail, this is exactly how a component based framework should integrate Bean Validation. great work.
