Hello,

I have an maven project, build in Netbeans 7.01 and a Glassfish 3.1 Server. I can get the Data in-and-out of the Database with hibernate, but when I use the @Valid Annotation I receive an AbstractMethodError at javax.persistence.

Java Code:

In my Appcontext I had defined the Validator
Java Code:
    <bean class="org.springframework.web.servlet.mvc.annotation.AnnotationMethodHandlerAdapter">
        <property name="webBindingInitializer">
            <bean class="org.springframework.web.bind.support.ConfigurableWebBindingInitializer">
                <property name="validator" ref="validator" />
            </bean>
        </property>
    </bean>
    
    <bean id="validator" class="org.springframework.validation.beanvalidation.LocalValidatorFactoryBean" />
I thank for every hint!
