Although org.springframework.validation.beanvalidation.LocalValidatorFactoryBean allows injecting a custom provider class to use (providerClass property), it doesn't allow injecting a custom javax.validation.ValidationProviderResolver. Using a custom resolver can for example prevent the need for declaring validation providers in a META-INF/services/javax.validation.spi.ValidationProvider file on the classpath.

The ValidationProviderResolver can be passed to ProviderSpecificBootstrap/GenericBootstrap that's returned by Validation, by using the providerResolver() method before the configuration gets built (javax.validation bootstrapping is currently done in the beginning of the afterPropertiesSet() method of the LocalValidatorFactoryBean).

Allowing the injection of a custom ValidationProviderResolver to use in the javax.validation bootstrap process would allow more flexibility when using the LocalValidatorFactoryBean.

Affects: 3.2.16
