Good news for those of you who want to certify the compatibility of a Bean Validation implementation (and its API JAR) against Java SE 8.
We have released updates to the Bean Validation TCK 1.0 and 1.1; The versions are 1.0.7.GA and 1.1.3.Final, respectively. Both TCK releases come now with a version of the API signature file which works with Java SE 8. This signature file can be used to assert API compatibility with JSR 303/349 via the SigTest tool. SigTest 3.0 needs to be used from now on. Note that the actual tests of the TCKs remain unchanged.
Don't hesitate to contact us in case you have any questions around the Bean Validation specification in general or the TCK in particular.
