 Post subject: Class validators not being called on embedded @Valid objects

I have a class that looks like this:

Code:
public class A {

    @Valid
    @Embedded
    Z z = new Z();

}

@Embeddable
public class Z {

    @NotNull
    String name;

    @AssertTrue
    public boolean validateMe() {
        return false;
    }

}

A a = new A();
// get the validator
validator.validate(a);



Z.name gets validated, but the validateMe() method is never called. Shouldn't it be?

Bean Validation itself doesn't invoke any methods besides JavaBeans getter methods (in case of property-level constraints). So if you put the @AssertTrue constraint to a getter method such as isValid(), this method would be invoked.
