Apache BVal Report December 2014

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. Last release was v0.5 in September 2012.


The Commons Weaver quasi-dependency bottleneck has as long last been resolved and BVal development has resumed. We continue to work with the Apache TomEE PMC, who bundle our project and thereby provide a clear barometer for ease of integration. I note the question on the agenda of whether we have enough committers to make releases... I assume this refers to BVal, though it could have referred to Commons as we did spend an unfortunate amount of time blocked there. While the developer energy of most of the PMC is being expended elsewhere, I believe we have strong enough representation amongst the wider "ApachEE" (i.e. JEE at Apache) community to be handily able to garner the votes for a release once we are satisfied with the state of the codebase.


No changes in community. Last PMC member added Q4 2013 Last committer added Q3 2013
