Subject [jira] [Created] (GERONIMO-6393) javax.validation.Validator lookup improvement
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2012 20:09:07 GMT
Jarek Gawor created GERONIMO-6393:

             Summary: javax.validation.Validator lookup improvement
                 Key: GERONIMO-6393
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: general
    Affects Versions: 3.0
            Reporter: Jarek Gawor
            Assignee: Jarek Gawor

Each time the same application looks up javax.validation.Validator object in JNDI a completely
new instance of the object is returned (as required per spec). However, with Apache Bean Validation
implementation that means that expensive annotation scanning is done on each Validator.validate()

Apache Bean Validation implementation maintains an annotation cache with each ValidatorContext.
However, each ValidatorFactory.getValidator() call creates a new instance of ValidatorContext
and that's why the cache is not reused and annotation scanning is done on each call. In Geronimo
we can ensure that the same ValidatorContext is used for the given application and therefore,
ensure that cache is reused and annotation scanning is only done one.
