Subject Re: Any good examples of Bean Validation?
Date Sat, 13 Aug 2016 22:03:16 GMT

Its not clear from your email whether your confusion is how to use bean
validation or how it integrates with camel.

the integrating with camel part is pretty straight forward.  Assuming that
the input to the segment of the route is a properly annotated bean, then
those bean attributes will be validated. and an exception thrown indicating
validation failed.  What it sounds like your looking for is a way to
validate the bean based on the context you're in.  That works with groups.
You may want to have a group for context 1 and another group for context
2.  Each validation can be applied to a group, with the default being to
use the default group.
