The Seam Validation module aims at integrating Hibernate Validator, the reference implementation for the Bean Validation API (JSR 303), with CDI (JSR 299).

This integration falls into two main areas:

  • Enhanced dependency injection services for validators, validator factories and constraint validators
  • Automatic validation of method parameters and return values based on Hibernate Validator's method validation feature

Design whiteboard

This section serves as a whiteboard for design and ideas for this module. Ideas for future features of Seam Validation include:
  • Provide the possibility to specify the validation groups for method validation (SEAMVALIDATE-1)
  • Investigate how getter constraints might be applied to setter methods (SEAMVALIDATE-11)
  • Investigate how bean constraints could be validated upon method validation
