Subject [jira] Created: (VALIDATOR-245) Not all of the indexedListProperty collection elements are validated
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2007 09:27:51 GMT
Not all of the indexedListProperty collection elements are validated

                 Key: VALIDATOR-245
             Project: Commons Validator
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Framework
    Affects Versions: 1.3.1 Release, 1.3.0 Release
            Reporter: Edmund Ward
            Priority: Minor

When the Field class method  "validate(Map params, Map actions)" validates an indexedListProperty
it will return as soon as it finds an element in the collection that fails validation. If
other fields in the collection are invalid too the user will only find out once they have
corrected the first invalid field. If the method were to validate all the fields in the collection
(which it will do anyway when all the elements are valid) the user would find all the invalid
fields the first time the bean is validated.

My proposed modification involves simply commenting out a couple of lines in the Field class
method "validate(Map params, Map actions)" 


 public ValidatorResults validate(Map params, Map actions)
     throws ValidatorException {
     if (this.getDepends() == null) {
         return new ValidatorResults();

     ValidatorResults allResults = new ValidatorResults();

     Object bean = params.get(Validator.BEAN_PARAM);
     int numberOfFieldsToValidate =
        this.isIndexed() ? this.getIndexedPropertySize(bean) : 1;

     for (int fieldNumber = 0; fieldNumber < numberOfFieldsToValidate; fieldNumber++) {
         Iterator dependencies = this.dependencyList.iterator();
         ValidatorResults results = new ValidatorResults();
         while (dependencies.hasNext()) {
             String depend = (String);

             ValidatorAction action = (ValidatorAction) actions.get(depend);
             if (action == null) {

             boolean good =
                 validateForRule(action, results, actions, params, fieldNumber);

             if (!good) {
                 //return allResults;
     return allResults;
