This support is described section EE.5.16 of the Java EE 6 specification. This requires jndi lookup entries for java:comp/Validator and java:comp/ValidatorFactory.
Very basic support for Validator and ValidatorFactory in rev 945801. This makes no attempt to locate the xml configuration files for these components.
rev 950395 includes the bval support in jetty servers. Needs adding to tomcat servers.
At revision: 997732
o DefaultValidator should use configured ValidatorFactory if any
At revision: 997868
o Cache the factory instance so that a single instance is used per module
I think this has been fixed, so close it.
