Rich UIs, schemaless datastores, microservices communicating with each other - the need for powerful and easy-to-use data validation services has never been bigger.
The Bean Validation standard is here to help, providing Java developers with a rich validation API based on annotations. Bean Validation 2.0 (JSR 380) takes validation to the next level by leveraging Java 8 features such as lambdas, additional annotation locations and repeatable annotations. This opens up exciting opportunities for Bean Validation - e.g. List<@Email String>. There will also be support for Optional, the java.time API and more.
Join us and see what's planned for Bean Validation 2.0 and what's already done. Like its predecessors, JSR 380 is developed fully in the open: come exchange, propose and participate!
