Subject [GitHub] accumulo issue #289: ACCUMULO-4677 Sanitizing PathParam values in REST-based...

    > @milleruntime What's your feeling on using javax.validation.constraints right in
the method signature? 
    I am on the fence with using external validation.  One one hand, it doesn't make sense
to bring in a slew of dependencies just for a few annotations.  I have seen full web apps
plagued by this in the past.  And since the monitor isn't the heart of Accumulo, I am more
hesitant to include something like this.  On the other hand, if it is only one transitive
dependency, I can definitely see the benefits it brings through custom code minimization and
enhanced end point security, since this type of validation is quite common with web apps.
    I am curious to see what type of errors are thrown by the validation.  I have seen frameworks
like hibernate obscure error handling, especially at the front end.  Although, I don't think
we have any error handling on the REST endpoints yet so perhaps that could be a follow on
