    Seam 2.0 is tightly coupled with Hibernate validator

    Joshua Jackson Master

      No offence, I think Hibernate validator is one great product. But does it need to be tightly integrated with Seam 2.0? Since in org.jboss.seam.core.validators, it's @Install(precedence=BUILT_IN)

      The issue is if user chooses not to use Hibernate as the persistence strategy or Hibernate validator also if that library is not bundled in the appserver such as glassfish.

      I know it's just a matter of adding hibernate-validator.jar in the classpath. But again if user doesn't use it, won't it just be useless? Will it be better if the precedence is not BUILT_IN? Or are there other thoughts regarding this?

      Just my two cents
