Validation of Beans

Just a small utility function that prints out readable messages on what is wrong with a certain bean (like for example a JPA Entity).

Got a little miffed with the fact that my javax.validation.ConstraintViolationException that is thrown, never shows the exact problem. I always have to drill down into the Exception to find the message in order to fix the problem.

I hope it helps someone.

See for more information about bean validation JSR 303.
