Description Andrej Podhradsky 2013-10-03 08:20:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Some required field are not marked as required (e.g. by asterisk) when a user adds bindings. Moreover, no error message is visible, just the finish button is disabled. This error message is displayed only when I type a text to some field and the set focus to another filed.

The following biunding wizards need marking the required field

    JCA (Endpoint Mapping Type)
    JMS (Queue/Topic Name)
    JPA (Entity Class Name)
    REST (RESTful Interfaces)

The other bindigs mark required fields by asterisk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
JBDS-IS 7.0.0.Beta4

How reproducible:

Couple of things. First, I'll add the asterisk back in on the fields it might be missing on. That's likely a ripple effect from localizing those strings. 

Second, by default we don't want to show an error message off the bat in wizards. That's not the style for wizards in Eclipse. You start with the Finish button disabled until they actually do something needing validation. Once they tab off, the message appears. Otherwise the text at the top of the wizard page is occluded by the error message and they may not know or understand what they're supposed to do anyway. 

So though I understand you want more immediate feedback for required fields, I don't think automatically flagging the validation problem is the way to go.

This PR updates the labels mentioned as well as fixes one validation issue found with the JPA binding.

BTW, the "Endpoint Mapping Type" field is handled a little differently with JCA from the original version of the binding UI to the revised version from a few months ago. I've added the asterisks for required fields in there, so hopefully that addresses what you were seeing.
