Bean Validation is run as an open source project. You can contribute to the API, the specification, the TCK and the reference implementation Hibernate Validator. Refer to the contribution guide on beanvalidation.org to learn more!
Q: Have you spoken at conferences and events about the JSR recently?
A: Bean Validation 2.0 has been presented at conferences including Devoxx US, JavaLand, jdk.io and RivieraDev. It is expected that expert group members will participate in conferences such as JavaOne and present updates on Bean Validation 2.0.
Q: Are you using open-source processes for the development of the RI and/or the TCK?
Q: What is the location of your publicly-accessible Issue list? In order to enable EC members to judge whether Issues have been adequately addressed, the list must make a clear distinction between Issues that are still open, Issues that have been deferred, and those that are closed, and must indicate the reason for any change of state.
Q: Which specific areas of feedback should interested community members (such as the Adopt-a-JSR program) provide to improve the JSR (please also post this to your Community tab)?
A: We are especially interested in real-world experiences with Bean Validation 1.0/1.1 as well as the proprietary support for Java 8 in the RI and any feature requests or suggestions by the community resulting from that.
