Subject [jira] [Commented] (BVAL-109) Wrong enforcement that validation groups have to be interfaces
Date Sun, 29 Jul 2012 16:18:33 GMT


Matt Benson commented on BVAL-109:

Hi Konstantin,
 I didn't 100% parse your last comment, but at a high level my position is that Apache BVal's
implementation of the Bean Validation specification should work out of the box in a manner
100% compliant with the letter of the specification.  Any deviation can be handled by SPI
implementations, optional configuration properties, etc.  For this reason I have left the
issue open and reclassified it from "Bug" to "New Feature."

Non interface classes could be used as well, but we recommend to stick to interfaces.
