Subject [jira] [Commented] (ZEST-114) Make Constraint Annotations Repeatables
Date Sun, 03 Jul 2016 15:48:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZEST-114?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15360582#comment-15360582
] 

Paul Merlin commented on ZEST-114:
----------------------------------

I couldn't find any existing Constraints in the codebase for which repetition could make sense
except {{@Contains}}.
But it could be changed to accept an array of Strings that the value must contain.

So, this issue is more about making sure the runtime supports repeated constraint annotations.

Either we find a use case that actually needs repeated annotations, or we simply implement
support for them using a dumb use case as a test, or we drop that idea completely.
