Apache BVal Report September 2013

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.


Java Bean Validation v1.1 has been implemented in a branch that successfully passes the TCK. Previous reports have mentioned that BVal awaited the availability of the new Commons [weaver] component, which is mostly baked and should have been released by the time that PMC reports again in December. The PMC must next determine a strategy to finalize its 1.0 API and merge this work with that having been done on the 1.1 branch to release both codebases.

Mailing list traffic continues to be minimal.


A new committer, Romain Manni-Bucau, has been welcomed to the BVal roster. Romain is the driving force behind the implementation of spec v1.1.


Nothing to report.

No concerns at present.


Nothing needed at the moment.
