Description of problem:
If we put string on integer data type should be restricted/throw exception. I Changed 'ALERT_PURGE' value from integer to String and imported to RHQ server. There is no validation on server CLI side! String directly inserted in to database and GUI throws exception!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHQ 4.1.0 Beta #47

How reproducible:

Import settings from RHQ server via CLI,

var ex = SynchronizationManager.exportAllSubsystems();
saveBytesToFile(ex.exportFile, 'export.xml.gz');

unpack the .gz pack and change the ALERT_PURGE to string and pack it then do import.

var data = getFileBytes('export.xml.gz');
SynchronizationManager.importAllSubsystems(data, null);

Actual results:
String updated successfully

Expected results:
Should report immediate exception/error message on CLI.

Added a dependency on bug 730335, which describes the underlying cause of this.
