BeanValidation 1.1 is now JSR 349

JBoss' Emmanuel Bernard has submitted Bean Validation 1.1 as JSR 349. This version should be part of Java EE 7 and an important goal for this release is further integration with other platform JSRs.

In addition to JSF and JPA, integrations with JAX-RS, JAXB, CDI and EJB are also considered. Other important evolutions include a potential API to validate parameters and return values of method calls as well as another API to declare constraints (as opposed to annotations today). The JSR page and this earlier blog post have more details.

Note that the current Bean Validation API can also very much be used with JavaSE. Ballot results for this JSR are due on July 25th, 2011.
