javax.faces.validator
Annotation Type FacesValidator


@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
@Target(value=TYPE)
@Inherited
public @interface FacesValidator

The presence of this annotation on a class automatically registers the class with the runtime as a Validator. The value of the value() attribute is taken to be the validator-id and the fully qualified class name of the class to which this annotation is attached is taken to be the validator-class. The implementation must guarantee that for each class annotated with FacesValidator, found with the algorithm in section JSF.11.5, Application.addValidator(java.lang.String,java.lang.String) is called, passing the derived validator-id as the first argument and the derived validator-class as the second argument. The implementation must guarantee that all such calls to addValidator() happen during application startup time and before any requests are serviced.
