Custom Java AEM annotation to do validations.


Level 1

Hi everyone,


I created a custom annotation that I would like when a method annotated with it is called, it automatically calls a service also created by me.

My Servlet

public void doPost(@Nonnull SlingHttpServletRequest request, @Nonnull SlingHttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {


My Annotation

public @interface MyValidator {


My Service

public class ValidatorServiceImpl implements RecaptchaValidateService {

//I will need to inject other services like other AEM service
private HttpRequestService requestService;

public void validate() {
...get first the SlingHttpServletRequest and then validate the request
if (isNotValid) throw new RuntimeException("my message")

The idea is to make a validation annotation. But I don't know how to add a listener for this annotation in OSGi.

Do you have any idea how I can do it?
