Hi all,

This is to let you know that we've initiated the move of the Bean Validation spec to Eclipse Jakarta EE [1]. This is to ensure a consistent further evolution of all the former Java EE specs under one umbrella.

There already is a project page [1], and if you've contributed to BV before, you are very much invited to join the new project at Eclipse, too. Let me know if it’s the case and send me your name and email that you used to register your Eclipse Foundation account. If you've already done so, you should have received a "paperwork" e-mail from the foundation in the last days; in this case please do the steps described in that mail.

The next step for us will be to do a release of the spec from the new location and using the new name "Jakarta Bean Validation", without any actual changes to the spec itself apart from updating references to "Java EE" etc.

If you have any questions around this all, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Al the best,
