[bv-dev] BVAL-238 Dependency injection in ConstraintViolation

concerning "How is CDI BeanManager (or equivalent) injected into Bean
Validation?" I'm wondering whether we really require something like

Couldn't the CDI runtime just set a CDI-aware
ConstraintValidatorFactory when creating the Validator(Factory). We
then wouldn't have any dependency to CDI in BV at all. On the downside
this would mean CDI-enabled validators would only work when using a
validator managed by CDI but not using a validator retrieved via
Validation.buildDefaultValidatorFactory() but that would be ok IMO.

So generally I think the BV/CDI integration should be more
triggered/managed from the CDI side than the other way around.

It's not quite a wiki but that's pretty close. One thing you cannot do is create a new file unfortunately. Anyone that have asked for write access should see this button.
