HI,

I'm writing an Object Value for holding any record I read from the file. But I'm unsure if I should check the length of the fields with the 'sets' methods. This forced me to throw an exception if the length is exceeded. Also, since the constructor should checks the values of fields as well, I don't know if I could call the sets methods from the constructor without breaking the sun code convention rules (calling the sets methods from the constructor I avoid repeat the check code that is written in the sets methods).

Thanks a lot!.

Hi Pedro,
please see this thread.

So I think you have to validate. The only question ist WHERE to validate. In the DTOs or in the database itself.

Greetings,
Romeo
