This example shows how to improve JSF2/CDI/BV/JPA applications with features provided by Apache MyFaces CODI and ExtVal.

Intro of MyFaces CODI and ExtVal

The Apache MyFaces Extensions CDI project (aka CODI) hosts portable extensions for Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI - JSR 299). CODI is a toolbox for your CDI application. Like CDI itself CODI is focused on type-safety. It is a modularized and extensible framework. So it’s easy to choose the needed parts to facilitate the daily work in your project.

MyFaces Extensions Validator (aka ExtVal) is a JSF centric validation framework which is compatible with JSF 1.x and JSF 2.x. This example shows how it improves the default integration of Bean-Validation (JSR-303) with JSF2 as well as meta-data based cross-field validation.
