Subject: Bean Validation Problem

I'm trying to use Bean Validation support that is part of Jersey 2.2 and fail to load the following class:

INFO: validateJarFile(/Users/tdonahue/Documents/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp0/wtpwebapps/pin-server/WEB-INF/lib/javax.el-api-2.2.4.jar) - jar not loaded. See Servlet Spec 2.3, section 9.7.2. Offending class: javax/el/Expression.class

I have the following dependency in my pom.xml file:





I'm using Eclipse Indigo J2EE release.

Does anyone know why this fails?
