      Description

      For testing purposes, gmail allows to extend a regular address

      john.doe@gmail.com
      to
      john.doe+test1@gmail.com
      and those work fine with MTAs and MUAs of various makers.

      But unfortunately org.apache.commons.validator.EmailValidator doesn't appear to like this.

      Suggestions:
      1) fix it
      2) in EmailValidator.java, document which RFCs you implement (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5322#section-3.4?)
