In my current project we are working on a web-application using JBoss Seam. One of the very common requirements while working on a web application is validating the data contained in a bean. Seam is powered with annotation based validation, seam uses Hibernate Validator for this feature. Hibernate validator is a reference implementation of Bean Validation (JSR-303).JSR-303 defines a meta-data model and API for JavaBean validation based on annotations.
In my coming posts I'll be focussing on JSR-303 and it's reference implementations. Some of the posts I'm thinking of right now
- Bean Validation JSR-303
- Hibernate Reference implementation
- Using Hibernate Validation, accessing it programmatically
- Creating custom annotation validator
