Upgrading from 4.2.0.Final to 4.3.0.Alpha1 caused the @Email annotation to be reported as "disallowed for this data type" for a String field.
private String emailAddress;
The annotation @Email is disallowed for this data type.
This seems like a really weird bug as I would expect there is a unit test case that tests that @Email is processed correctly, so I'm pondering the value of expending the effort of creating just such a simple example as a test case. Any suggestions on things I can do on my side to narrow/explore this issue before I create a full blown example? I tried a few variations like adding another String field and trying that and got the same message (no surprise).
