I'm taking my first steps with Seam3 and have used Forge to create my first project.
It doesn't add Hibernate Validation to the manifest - just wondering if it is good practice to mix and match javax validation and Hibernate validation ? or should I stick to javax ?
If you're using a Java EE 6 you should be using the javax.validation classes. Hibernate Validator 4.x is the RI for Bean Validation, so a lot of what you've been using in Hibernate Validator 3 should still apply.
