The Apache BVal project implements the Java EE Bean Validation specification(s) and related extensions, and became a top-level project of the foundation on February 15, 2012.
No new releases.
Development has proceeded at what can charitably be termed a crawl for the past year while BVal's team have been expending their volunteer energies elsewhere. A large obstacle has just been removed, however, in the form of the Apache Commons Weaver component, which has just seen its 1.0 release. This project had been one of the aforementioned time/energy sinks and was developed for the express purpose of solving one of BVal's long-standing design problems; speaking on behalf of the PMC I am hopeful that we can now resume a respectable development velocity and finally make our 1.0 and 1.1 (implementing, respectively, the same versions of the Java Bean Validation specification) releases in the near future.
No changes in community. Romain Manni-Bucau was added to the PMC during the previous quarter after having been elected a committer the quarter before that.
Nothing to report.
No concerns at present.
Nothing needed at the moment.
