Yeah of course. I've been working with the Struts validation framework
for years and I'm getting sick of it. So I'm trying to incorporate the
validation information as source level metadata:
* @jteam.validation.MaxLength ( 1 )
* @jteam.validation.RequiredIfEmpty ( anotherProperty )
* @jteam.validation.Unique ( )
public String setName();
In a Spring Validator, I'm retrieving the attributes using
BcelAttributes and then inspect the class... Works kind of neat,
but still, won't this conflict with the ASM way hibernate does things?

Subject: [Springframework-developer] Class file manipulation with BCEL
I'm playing around with the source level metadata stuff and it looks
really cool! I'm trying to implement some of our validation features
using it and have successfully generated some classes using the
MetaDataCompiler. However, I was wondering how BCEL affects the classes
and if this is not going to bring us major problem when for instance
serializing classes and stuff...
Also, I once heard Hibernate uses asm and stuff, won't this bring any
conflicts? I'm to use the functionality in our domain model...
Might not be the right place to ask those kind of quesitons, but
P.s. Joost, one of our people and the main backend guy here has moved to
Spring completely by the way. He just said: hmmmm, it seems like those
spring guys are actually doing a good job (it's really something if
sceptic joost says something like that :-)
