    package javax.validation does not exist

      Hi Seam-Community!

      I'm new to Seam and really like it, but now I've ran into a serious problem:

      I've tried to create my own constraint, following the procedure from Chapter 3. Creating custom constraints of the Hibernate-Reference.

      My attempt looks like this:

      import java.lang.annotation.Retention;
      import java.lang.annotation.RetentionPolicy;
      import javax.validation.Constraint;
      @Constraint(validatedBy = PasswordValidator.class)
      public @interface  Password {

      At this point, my NetBeans tells me that "package javax.validation does not exist".

      I have generated my project using seam-gen, so the hibernate-validator.jar iside the project's lib-directory and the classpath.

      After some googling, I replaced the "old" Validator with the hibernate-validator-4.2.0.Final.jar. But I've still got the same problem.

      My setup is:

      • Seam 2.2.2

      • JBoss AS 6.0.0

      • NetBeans 7.0

      • Mac OS 10.6.8

      Since I wasn't able to find any useful solution for my problem in the internet (including this forum), I hope that somebody here can help me!

      Regarts Michael
