Re: GWT and BV/javax.validation 1.1

I had to upgrade to JPA 2.1 today to be able to use this feature:

It also required upgrading Hibernate.  In the process I ran into the same issue that Jörg ran into.

My solution was to hold back hibernate-validator to 4.2.0 as my version of hibernate (4.3.6) still works with it.

My concern is that if GWT development has wound down, and Google is no longer bankrolling it, no one is going to take on this project, and I am sure there are other projects that use BV 1.1 that GWT developers will be unable to use.

If there is a straightforward and practical way of using a different version on the client side versus the server side, the GWT devs should at least explore that option.

I use the built in Eclipse debugger extensively, both for client code as well as my server code, so the solution should definitely not break the eclipse IDE tools, because I think it's one of the best features of GWT development.

Anyway, I just want to tell all the devs that I love this platform,  it has re-ignited my passion for making applications, keep up the amazing work. 

My two recent favorite features:

Editor Framework
Using the combinaion of Requestfactory with JPA.
