Help and contribute

Bean Validation welcomes contribution and of any sort:


The work on Bean Validation 1.1 is completed, so most of the effort will be focused on Hibernate Validator, the reference implementation, where we will experiment the features we want to introduce in a next round of the specification.**


Feedback is more than welcome, either by starting a discussion on our forum or by opening/commenting an issue in our bug tracker.


If you think some new feature should be added to Bean Validation or you want to influence the shape of new Bean Validation features, come and join our development mailing list.


All specification work is done in the open. This does not only include discussions, but also all code and artifacts. Here is a list of all relevant GitHub source repositories:
