Affects Version/s: 2.2.0
Fix Version/s: None
During the configuring of a new project I found these two params in JSF spec 2.2:
If this param is set, and calling toLowerCase().equals("true") on a String representation of its value returns true, the runtime must not automatically add the validator with validator-id equal to the value of the symbolic constant javax.faces.validator.VALIDATOR_ID to the list of default validators. Setting this parameter to true will have the effect of disabling the automatic installation of Bean Validation to every input component in every view in the application, though manual installation is still possible.
In environments that include Bean Validation, the following additional actions must be taken at startup time. If the javax.faces.validator.DISABLE_BEAN_VALIDATOR <context-param> exists and its value is true, the following step must be skipped:
The runtime must guarantee that the validator id javax.faces.Bean is included in the result from a call to
Application.getDefaultValidatorInfo() (see Section 188.8.131.52 “Default Validator Ids”), regardless of any
configuration found in the application configuration resources or via the @FacesValidator annotation.
I don't see a difference really. I guess, this is a error in the spec.
But I didn't found the DISABLE_BEAN_VALIDATOR in Myfaces source code - should we implement it nevertheless ?
