Hibernate Validator is not the only Bean Validation implementation out there, we have one (friendly) competitor called Apache BVal.
Apache BVal has not caught up with Bean Validation 2.0 yet but, as the last benchmark in the Bean Validation field is dated from 2010 (remember "Machete don’t text"?), I thought it was high time to revisit this benchmark and get some fresh numbers.
Especially with all the optimization work we made for 6.0.
As you can see, the Hibernate websites
(hibernate.org and in.relation.to)
just got a facelift!
We made them prettier than ever, but we also added more information
and made sure that you will find what you want even more easily than before.
