This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I have a question. I'm working on some EJB3 session beans which are the business logic for a few JSF pages. Currently, both the JSF pages as well as my methods seperately check if certain method parameters conform to specific rules (length min/max, matches specific regex, etc.). I dont like having to do this twice but since the beans can be called from places thay may not do such validation I dont have much of a choice.
My question is this; is there a neat way to define such rules once and use them in both the beans and the JSPs? Is there a best practice for this?
