  [[http://code.google.com/p/agimatec-validation/|Agimatec Validation]] is an implementation
of the [[http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=303|Bean Validation Specfication (JSR303)]].
  
  Although the destination of the Validation podling is not fixed, the idea is that it will
graduate to Apache Commons and replace the existing Validator component.

+ == Background ==
  
  [[http://code.google.com/p/agimatec-validation/|Agimatec Validation]] has been developed
by [[http://agimatec.de/|Agimatec Gmbh]] and is about 80% complete towards implementing the
[[http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=303|JSR303]] specification. The Agimatec-Validation project
is currently hosted on Google Code and is ASL 2.0 licensed. Agimatec has no intention to complete
or maintain the implementation but has given the lead developer permission to continue working
on the project on his own time.
  
  A number of existing Apache projects (Geronimo, OpenJPA, MyFaces, OpenEJB, Commons) are
interested in an implementation of the Bean Validation specification and Donald Woods suggested
adopting the Agimatec Validation code rather than starting from scratch.

  == Meritocracy ==
  
+ As a majority of the initial project members are existing ASF committers, we recognize the
desirability of running the project as a meritocracy.  We are eager to engage other members
of the community and operate to the standard of meritocracy that Apache emphasizes; we believe
this is the most effective method of growing our community and enabling widespread adoption.
  
  == Community ==
  
+ Even though the reference implementation for the JSR-303 Bean Validation specification is
licensed under ASL 2.0, it is not being developed with meritocracy in mind, as the release
process is controlled by the JBoss division of Red Hat to meet their own product needs.
+ 
+ Validation aims to build a community of developers interested in the definition and delivery
of a JSR-303 compliant runtime, which can be reused as a common component by a number of different
projects (like Geronimo, OpenJPA, MyFaces, ....)  By maintaining independence of the target
runtime, it is our intention to build the broadest possible community of developers.

  == Orphaned Products ==
  
+ The project will be implementing the JSR-303 Bean Validation specification, which is a required
component for both the Web and Full profiles of Java EE 6.  There is minimal risk of this
work becoming non-strategic and the contributors are confident that a larger community will
form within the project in a relatively short space of time.
  
  == Inexperience with Open Source ==
  
+ Many of the committers have experience working in one or more open source projects including
Apache Commons, Geronimo, OpenJPA, OpenEJB and MyFaces.
  
  == Homogenous Developers ==
  
+ The list of initial committers are geographically distributed across the U.S. and Europe,
with no one company being associated with a majority of the developers.  Many of these initial
developers are experienced Apache committers already and all are experienced with working
in distributed development communities.  It is our hope that, through the incubator, further
contributors with a broad background of experience but common interest will become involved
with this project. 
  
  == Reliance on Salaried Developers ==
  
+ To the best of our knowledge, none of the initial committers are being paid to develop code
for this project.
  
  == Relationships with Other Apache Products ==

in contributing to and adopting this implementation.

framework and fully certified Java EE 5 application server runtime. It is interested in using
this project, to provide the required JSR-303 implementation for the upcoming Geronimo 3.0
server, which will be a Java EE 6 certified release.

 In the future, we may decide to include the Validation artifacts in our distribution for
Java SE users.

needs to integrate and test with a JSR-303 provider as part of the JSR-314 JSF2 specification.
 It is our hope, that the preferred Bean Validation provider will become Validation instead
of the Hibernate RI, after the project exits the incubator.
