JSF Validation <f:validateBean> Tag

It is used to register a bean validator to the component. For validating bean model, you must set the context parameter in the web deployment descriptor file web.xml.


Bean Validation Constraints

JSF provides validation constraints for bean model in the form of annotations. You can place that annotations on a field, method, or class of a JavaBeans component, such as a managed bean.

JSF also provides facility to create custom or user defined constraints. The built-in constraints are available in the javax.validation.constraints package and tabled in the following table.

@DecimalMin This constraint specifies that the value of the field or property must be a decimal value greater than or equal to the number in the value element. @DecimalMin("5.00") BigDecimal discount;
@DecimalMax It is used to specify that the value of the field or property must be a decimal value lower than or equal to the number in the value element. @DecimalMax("30.00") BigDecimal discount;
@Max It is used to set the value of the field or property which must be an integer value lower than or equal to the number in the value element. @Max(10) int quantity;
@Min It is used to set the value of the field or property which must be an integer value greater than or equal to the number in the value element. @Min(5) int quantity;
