As part of "GERONIMO-5222 Add support for application validation descriptor support for deployed applications", I am trying to process validation.xml in Web and other Java EE modules.  I have come across org/apache/bval/jsr303/ConfigurationImpl.  But, then it would still require parsing of validation.xml within Geronimo code. Just wanted to check if there is any other API that I have missed out.

Right, one area in the doc that needs updating...

For Apache BVal, take a look at -

Which can hold the constraint mappings as InputStreams and has
   public ValidatorFactory buildValidatorFactory()

You can get a Validator with something like -

javax.validation.Configuration configuration = Validation.byProvider(
Validator validator = configuration.buildValidatorFactory().getValidator();

Are you trying to build a Validator with a Configuration that uses a
custom validation.xml?
