It's with great pleasure that I announce the release of Hibernate Validator
This release is coordinated with the Bean Validation 2.0 Early Draft 1
release that happened earlier this week .
Hibernate Validator 6 will be the reference implementation of Bean
Validation 2.0, but it's also a place to experiment with the future
additions to the spec.
Apart from initial Bean Validation 2.0 support, this version comes with a
lot of good things:
- some Java 8 goodness,
- nested type use constraints and nested cascaded validation
- lambda based constraint definition
- Duration support (and a much improved java.time support coming as part of
Bean Validation 2.0)
As explained in the announce on in.relation.to , we are looking forward
to your feedback on these features. They might be refined and included in
the next Bean Validation 2.0 iteration if they get enough traction.
Have a nice day!
