Hi Adam,

Thanks for covering Bean Validation and its integration with JAX-RS; Very glad to hear you like it :)

One thing though: the resolution of the screen cast is rather low, which makes it hard to read the text in the IDE. Maybe you could produce the videos with a higher resolution?

Thanks for all of your education tutorials!

I have two questions about the "message" part of the bean validation constraint.
A) How is it possible to get practical use of it beside of unit testing?

B) In case of an age of 17 a BeanValidationException is thrown, but the message "only adults" won't be distributed! Is there something more to annotate or to configure?

Best regards Thomas

class Person{

@Min(18, message="only adults")
@Max(120, message="you must be dead")
byte age;
