The part of the reference manual that talks about integration with JSR-303 conveniently omits two things, without which BV does not kick in.

  1. A MethodValidationPostProcessor needs to be configured in addition to the LocalValidatorFactoryBean.
  2. The class to be validated must have a @Validated annotation on it else methods are NOT searched for inline constraint annotations.

This just caused me 6 hours of debugging and hair tearing where I did everything the doc said but BV would simply not kick in. I finally had to debug through the Spring source code to understand this. There got to be an easier way and I can't be the only one who had this problem.

Affects: 4.0.2
