How to set the order in which validations are performed when using @Valid?
I'm using the @Valid annotation to perform validations after a form submit. (Spring MVC 3.1)
Error messages are then displayed in the page based on these validations.
The problem is that I need to control how these messages are displayed (in other words, in which order they are displayed).
I know it can be done by using groups, but it seems like a patch to me. Groups don't seem to be meant for that... but maybe I'm wrong?!?
And also, I don't want to define a group (a new interface) for each property of my bean... it needs to be simpler than that...
So, my question ... is there a proper way to set the order in which validations will be performed?
