--------------------------------------------------

  
  == Abstract ==
  
- Validation is an implementation of the [[http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=303|Bean Validation
Specfication (JSR303)]]
+ The Validation project will deliver an implementation of the [[http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=303|Bean
Validation Specfication (JSR303)]]
  
  == Proposal ==
  
- [[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)]].
+ The initial Validation codebase will use the [[http://code.google.com/p/agimatec-validation/|Agimatec
Validation]] source, which 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.
  
- 
  == Rationale ==
  
+ There is currently no Apache project focused on providing a JSR-303 implementation.  The
existing Commons Validator 1.x project codebase does not include support for Java 5 annotations
and predates the JSR-303 specification effort.  By using the Agimatec-Validation code, we
can bootstrap the effort to create a Validator 2 release and focus on polishing/enhancing
the code, certification activities and integration and support of other Apache projects.

  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.

may be developed and delivered by other Apache projects, like:

from Agimatec (Roman) with no available documents on the structure of the code.

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.

Gmbh) did not approach Apache, but were instead approached by Donald Woods about moving the
code to Apache in hopes to build a broader and more vibrant community around the code and
as the eventual next generation Commons Validator codebase.
