Hibernate Exception: Unable to build the default ValidatorFactory

Posted on 2011-09-08
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi Experts,

   I have environment installed as below
    Spring 2.5.4
    Hibernate 3.7
   GWT 2.4

   I have included all the hibernate library jars (I  don't have hibernate validator installed)

   When I build the application, I have error message below.

   It looks like the GWT adds the validation jar gwt-2.4.0/validation-api-1.0.0.GA.jar, I'm not sure if that is the reason for Hibernate to fail to build.

   Please help!
