OVal 0.8 released

OVal is a generic Java 5 based object validation framework for any kind of Java objects (not only JavaBeans). Constraints can be expressed with
annotations or in XML. OVal supports validation of class fields, method return values, as well as constructor/method parameters. Automatic
validation (programming by contract) can be achieved by using pre-built AspectJ aspects.

Major changes in this release:
* NEW: added support for interpreting EJB3 JPA annotations
* NEW: all configuration classes are now serializable
* NEW: added support for ParaNamer http://paranamer.codehaus.org/ for method parameter name resolving
* various minor fixes... read more

Major changes in this release:
* NEW: XML based configuration (utilizing XStream)
* NEW: support for alternative Java Collection implementations (e.g. Javolution)
* NEW: constraint sets
