Actually, there result of the validation is correct. Check the returned Set of ConstraintValidation instances. If you look at the log, you see that this his a warning message.

LuhnCheck is relevant in this case, since it @CreditCard is implemented as composing constraint. Obviously we need to fix the messages (and maybe improve on the log message). For now you have several options:

  • Ignore the warning in the log (the result is correct)

  • Configure logging to ignore messages from this logger category: log4j.logger.org.hibernate.validator.internal.engine.messageinterpolation.InterpolationTerm=ERROR in case of Log4J

  • Add your own ValidationMessages.properties to the root of the classpath (in case you have not done so yet) and add:

Hope this helps for now and thanks for reporting this.
