with spring 3 annotations, jsr303 getting Neither BindingResult nor plain target object for bean name 'dataForm'

Implementing a simple jsr303 validation using spring 3 with annotations and I am getting the following result when the post finds missing elements:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Neither BindingResult nor plain target object for bean name 'dataForm' available as request attribute

The controller looks like so:

@Controller
@SessionAttributes
@RequestMapping( "/dataentry.html" )
public class EnterDataController
{
  @RequestMapping( method = RequestMethod.GET )
  public String enterNewDataHandler( Map model )
  {
    DataEntryForm dataForm = new DataEntryForm();
    model.put( "dataForm", dataForm );
    return ( "dataentry" );
  }

  @RequestMapping( method = RequestMethod.POST )
  public String addData( @Valid DataEntryForm dataForm,
                           BindingResult          result,
                           Map                    model )
  {
    if ( result.hasErrors() ) { return ( "dataentry" ); }

    ... code for saving data ...
  }
}

The form looks like so:

public class DataEntryForm
{
  @NotNull
  private Double dataAmount;

  @NotNull
  @Temporal(value=TemporalType.TIMESTAMP)
  private Date dataDate;

  ... sets and gets ...
}

The jsp form section looks like so:

<form:form method="post"
           commandName="dataForm"
           action="dataentry.html">
  <table>
  <tr>
    <td><form:label path=dataAmount">Data</form:label></td>
    <td><form:input path="dataAmount"/></td>
    <td><div class="error"><form:errors path="dataAmount"/></div></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td><form:label path="dataDate">Date</form:label></td>
    <td><form:input path="dataDate"/></td>
    <td><div class="error"><form:errors path="dataDate"/></div></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td colspan="2"><input type="submit" value="Add Data"/></td>
  </tr>
</table>
</form:form>

I am implementing a standard spring return type of String for the logical view name. Here is the full stack trace:

Any suggestions? And, is there any docs that describe in detail what happens under the hood with this?

I have had this problem before. I believe that in addition to using @Valid you must also use @ModelAttribute("dataForm") so it knows how to map your form to your DataEntryForm object.

  @RequestMapping( method = RequestMethod.POST )
  public String addData( @ModelAttribute("dataForm") @Valid DataEntryForm dataForm,
                       BindingResult          result,
                       Map                    model )
  {
      if ( result.hasErrors() ) { return ( "dataentry" ); }

      ... code for saving data ...
  }

It looks a little ugly. I kind of wish that the two annotations could be combined somehow.
