The most significant feature in Bean Validation 2.0 (JSR 380) is the support for container element constraints.
I.e. you can now apply constraints to the contents of container types such as List, Map or Optional by annotating their type arguments
(which became possible with Java 8): List<@Future LocalDate> shipmentDates.
In this blog post you’ll learn how to take advantage of that for the validation of custom container types,
such as Multimap, Table or Graph from Google’s widely known Guava library.
We just published 5.10.0.Beta1, the first beta release for the 5.10 branch.
The main goal of this release is to target Hibernate ORM 5.3,
but it also adds DI framework integration and a TikaBridge improvement: see below!
Hibernate ORM 5.3 has not been officially released yet, and is still just a candidate release,
so this might be a good time to try to upgrade your application to ORM 5.3 + Search 5.10 and report any problems!
This is the first CR release for the Hibernate ORM 5.3 family. 5.3 represents a JPA 2.2 compatible version
on top of 5.2. CR1 indicates that we have verified that this release passes the JPA 2.2 TCK. In 2 weeks (Feb 28)
we will release either Final or CR2.
