Re-consider your choice because Seam helps you a lot with the plumbing of your application. And if you really insist: Hibernate validation documentation should provide you with suffient help to get it working by calling the validator framework yourself (it's really easy).
thanks for Your reply.
Whole seam framewor is to heavy for me and I don't want to use whole framework, but I'd like to have annotation based bean validation :)
The whole framework is to big... ok, In Seam 3 it will be split in more manageable parts. But in the mean time you prefer:
- Not having Beans automatically available in JSF pages, but keep configuring faces-config.xml files
- On top of that, implement hibernate validation yourself
- No advantages of conversations?
And keep the code you start building yourself maintained for the next few years? Hmmmm.... Would not be my choice just as Leo states, I would reconsider.
I have one question though....If you do not want to use seam, why do you post in the seam forum? (no offence, just really curious)
