I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this issue, but I didn't see anything under HValidator about ri. This bug exists in the maven artifact
If there is a newer version that fixes this bug I apologize. In any case, in the jar above, the issue occurs in javax.validation.Validation$DefaultValidationProviderResolver.getValidationProviders
Line 322 has:
but I believe it should be:
In order to work on non-ASCII platforms (EBCDIC in my case)
A service provider identifies itself... The file must be encoded in UTF-8.
Thanks for this bug report. We will look into it for Bwan Validation 1.1. Work on this new version has already started.
Thanks for the report. It's not in Git's master.
