Integration with Java 8

Description

Creating this issue as hub for discussions around usage of Java 8 constructs in HV. The following possibilities come to my mind:

  • Retrieve parameter names via reflection to report parameter constraint violations (JEP #118)

  • Make @List constraints usable with facility for specifying the same annotation more than once (JEP #120)

  • Use method references to refer to properties in programmatic config API

  • Integrate engine and AP code base by using reflection-based implementation of the model API (JEP #119) (not part of Java 8)

  • Support new date/time datatypes (JEP #150, JSR 310)

  • Integrate with Optional, JavaFX types

  • Use type annotations to support List<@Email String> mails (JEP #104)
