Member of the Hibernate team and project lead of Hibernate Validator as well as Bean Validation expert group member. Jack of all trades, interested in everything Java and beyond.
It has been a while since the first alpha release of Validator 5.1, but as the saying goes:
Haste makes waste :-)
There is a lot going on in the Hibernate universe and over the last few months we have been
especially busy with projects like Search and OGM.
Not to speak of the new Hibernate website. Sigh, if we just had more contributors lending a
hand (hint, hint).
Guillaume pointed out recently on the hibernate-dev mailing list that is has been a very long time since the last release of Hibernate JPA Metamodel Generator release and that it is time to do another one. And we listened. We just released 1.3.0.Final. As usual, you can get the artefacts from the JBoss Maven repo or from SourceForge.
With the release of Hibernate Validator 5.1.0.Alpha1 just out, it is time to pick up on the Bean Validation 1.1 spotlight series and cast a light onto method validation. Long time Hibernate Validator users know that method validation is part of Validator since version 4.2, however only as a provider specific featue. Bean Validation 1.1 makes method validation now part of the specification.
It has been quite some time since I have done my last Hibernate Search release announcement, so I am especially happy to get the 4.4 release train rolling. Hibernate Search 4.4.0.Alpha1 is now out and ready for download, either from the JBoss Maven Repository under the GAV org.hibernate:hibernate-search:4.4.0.Alpha1 or via SourceForge. The release contains fixes for 16 issues which you can closer inspect in the Jira release notes.
Today we are happy to announce the 5.0.1.Final release of Hibernate Validator. In case you are wondering what happened with 5.0.0.Final - it has not gone missing. In fact it was released on the 11th of April.
With the endgame for Bean Validation 1.1 in full swing, we want to make sure that everyone has the chance to test and integrate early. So without further ado:
Playing catchup with last week's Bean Valdiation specification release (1.1.0.Beta3) we are happy to make the following releases available as well:
Inspired by these questions on the Search forum and stackoverflow I decided to blog about different solutions for the problem using only the tools available in Search right now (4.1.1.Final). But let's start with the problem.
Good news for all of you waiting for an early version of Hibernate Validator 5 in order to experiment with the new Bean Validation 1.1 (JSR 349) features. Hibernate Validator 5.0.0.Alpha1 is now available for download in the JBoss Maven Repository under the GAV org.hibernate:hibernate-validator:5.0.0.Alpha1 or via SourceForge.
Last year I have been giving an introduction to OGM and OpenShift at JUDCon London using a modified version of the kitchensink quickstart. Time has gone and it was time to give the demo a revamp.
