We just published 5.10.0.Beta2, the second beta release for the 5.10 branch.
This release mainly includes an upgrade to WildFly 12 for the JBoss modules,
but it also adds a few bugfixes and improvements: see below!
Following the "release early, release often" motto, here comes a new version of Hibernate Validator, 6.0.9.Final.
It brings some nice improvements and fixes a couple of bugs.
This is a recommended upgrade for everyone using Hibernate Validator and it is a drop-in replacement of 6.0.8.Final, except if you already started to use the new constraint validator payload feature (see below).
This blog post is the first of a series on exploring JPMS modularity patterns for specification APIs.
In this part we’re going to look into how implementations of a specification API can be bootstrapped in a portable way
and how such implementations can access the private state of modules of the user of the API.
As discussed a while ago,
the latter is a common requirement;
for instance JPA providers must do so for reading and writing entity state.
