I just pushed my little JSR-303 validation lib out as a 1.0.0 release. The JSR-303 is not 1.0 so it seemed like a good idea. 

The biggest changes are probably the ones needed to support those. If you were using the library you won't notice any difference, the changes are all internal and the actual annotations haven't changed. 

I've also removed the springframework package. JSR-303 is now supported in spring 3 and their support is better.

Finally I've added some static methods to AbstractAnnotationTest, assertValid and assertViolation; I've found them useful testing annotated classes and figure someone else may too. 

Check it out and let me know what you think.
