public abstract static class AbstractPasswordService.AbstractStrengthValidator
extends WValidator
Validator for password strength.

This class defines a specialized validator interface for evaluating password strength. The implementation allows to evaluate strength in addition to the normal validator functionality of validating a password.

The evaluateStrength() computes the strength and returns an instance of StrenghtValidatorResult which contains information on the validity and the strength of the password together with possible messages.
