Once you have all of the appropriate jndi stuff set up to create a 
factory appropriate for the given context, injecting those into the 
different contexts was fairly simple.  It's been a few weeks since I 
looked at this, but I think for Jira 5226, it was a matter of setting a 
property with the appropriate ValidationFactory instance when creating 
the persistence manager.  Using the version obtained from the jndi 
context makes that a fairly simple matter.  For 5227 (JSF), this is a 
simple matter of setting an additional attribute in the servlet context, 
again sourced from the same location.

Note that I have a suspicion that Jira 5228 might not be needed.  The 
validation spec APIs have support for creating a ValidationFactory 
instance from a given validation xml descriptor.  So it would appear 
there is no need for the Geronimo code to understand or process the 
contents of these descriptors directly.
