Is there any documentation for using the @SchemaValidation annotation in jaxrs?  I looked but
could not find it.

Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Apache CXF 2.3.0 released!

The Apache CXF team is proud to announce the availability of the 2.3.0 release.

Apache CXF is an open source services framework. CXF helps you build and develop services
using frontend programming APIs like JAX-WS and JAX-RS. 
These services can speak a variety of protocols such as SOAP, XML/HTTP, RESTful HTTP, or 
CORBA and work over a variety of transports such as HTTP, JMS or JBI. 

CXF includes a broad feature set, but it is primarily focused on the following
* Web Services Standards Support: CXF supports a variety of web service standards including
SOAP, the WSI Basic Profile, WSDL, WS-Addressing, WS-Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Security,
WS-SecurityPolicy, WS-Trust, and WS-SecureConversation. 

* REST based service creation based on JAX-RS 1.1 standard API's.
* Frontends: CXF supports a variety of "frontend" programming models. CXF provides a JAX-WS
2.2 Compliant frontend. It also includes a "simple frontend" which allows creation of clients
and endpoints without annotations. 
CXF supports both contract first development with WSDL and code first development starting
from Java.
* Ease of use: CXF is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. There  are simple APIs to
quickly build code-first services, Maven plug-ins to make tooling integration easy, JAX-WS
API support, Spring  XML support to make configuration a snap, and much more.

What's new in CXF 2.3.0:
* JAX-WS 2.2 Compliant (passes TCK)
* JAX-RS 1.1 Compliant (passes TCK)
* New annotations for Java first use cases to reduce the need for external 
   configuration and provide more control over the runtime and generated WSDL
   * @WSDLDocumentation annotation to add documentation nodes to generated wsdl
   * @SchemaValidation annotation to turn on schema validation
   * @DataBinding to set the databinding used (if other than JAXB)
   * @GZIP to turn on GZIP compression
   * @FastInfoset to turn on FastInfoset support
   * @Logging to turn on and control various Logging functionality
   * @EndpointProperty to configure endpoint properties
   * @Policy to associate WS-Policy documents with the service
* SOAP/JMS spec implementation. While CXF has supported SOAP over JMS 
   since 2.0, there wasn’t a standard specification to describe how it 
   should be done so different vendors did things differently and 
   interoperability was impossible. The new SOAP/JMS specification 
   support implements the new SOAP/JMS spec to achieve a higher 
   degree of interoperability.
* SDO databinding
* Schema Validation support for Aegis Databinding if Woodstox 4 is used 
   for the Stax parser
* Many other small tweaks and enhancements, too many to enumerate.
