App server needs to scan all TLDs that are part of deployment as this is per spec (as it enables few discovery features)
You got hit with http://java.net/jira/browse/SPRINGMODULES-13
I would suggest either fixing tld manually or find something alternative to spring modules
Alternative would be http://beanvalidation.org/ as it is a standard and is also part of EE6&7
Thank you for the response!
I didn't know what springmodules is.
It is just a fork of old spring framework version for people who prefer old things... In my project it was used just for ONE annotation... Unbelievable. I will throw it away. But I'm still not sure it will help. We have a very big amount of *.tld in the different frameworks.
