D10040 - JSR303, @Pattern for regular expression

This chapter will introduce the last annotation of JSR303.

Demo projects:


  1. JSR303 is only supported in Agent component in zero system, it means that after you have send the message to event bus, the JSR303 will be effectiveness.
  2. When you write the code with the Interface Style ( Will introduce in forward tutorials ), JSR303 will not support this kind of situation.
  3. For @BodyParam, it also impact Agent component only, but could support Interface Style instead of JSR303 and could provide more useful validations.

1. Source Code

package up.god.micro.validation;

import io.vertx.up.annotations.EndPoint;

import javax.validation.constraints.Pattern;

public class PatternActor {

    public String sayPattern(
            @Pattern(regexp = "^lang[0-9]+$")
            @QueryParam("pattern") final String pattern
    ) {
        return "Hi, Pattern = " + pattern;

2. Testing

URL : http://localhost:6083/api/jsr303/pattern?pattern=lang.yu

Method : GET

Response :

    "code": -60000,
    "message": "[ERR-60000] (Validator) Web Exception occus: (400) - Request validation failure, class = class up.god.micro.validation.PatternActor, method = public java.lang.String up.god.micro.validation.PatternActor.sayPattern(java.lang.String), message = must match \"^lang[0-9]+$\".",
    "info": "must match \"^lang[0-9]+$\""

3. Summary

If you provide valid value, you should get following correct response:

URL : http://localhost:6083/api/jsr303/pattern?pattern=lang2

    "data": "Hi, Pattern = lang2"
