in Java HV000030: No validator could be found for constraint ‘javax.validation.constraints.Email’

Tags: , , , ,



I am trying to send html email notification when user submits a form but I am getting an error. Can you please look at it?

There was an unexpected error (type=Internal Server Error, status=500).HV000030: No validator could be found for constraint 'javax.validation.constraints.Email' validating type 'java.lang.String'. Check configuration for 'email'

javax.validation.UnexpectedTypeException: HV000030: No validator could be found for constraint ‘javax.validation.constraints.Email’ validating type ‘java.lang.String’. Check configuration for ’email’

        response.setMessage("Mail Sending failure : "+e.getMessage());
        response.setStatus(Boolean.FALSE);
    }

    return response;
}

This is in my main Service and I call this method from Controller.

public MailResponse sendConfirmationEmail(String email) throws UnexpectedTypeException {
    Map<String, Object> modelsMap = new HashMap<>
    modelsMap.put("name", "Tural");
    modelsMap.put("Location", "Baku");
    
    MailRequest mailRequest = new MailRequest(email);
    
    return emailservice.sendEmail(mailRequest, modelsMap);
    
}

From my Controller I am passing email address to my method:

 @Email @RequestParam("email") String email,
 DAOServiceImpl.sendConfirmationEmail(email);

I did some research and upgraded hibernate-validator in pom.xml as well but doesn’t work

 <dependency>
   <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId>
   <artifactId>hibernate-validator</artifactId> 
  <version>6.0.11.Final</version>
</dependency>

Thank you for your help!!

Answer

The solution for this problem is to add a message in the annotation @Email.

@Email(message = "Email should be valid") 

Depends on the implementation that you use this attribute is required or not.
