I was wondering if it is possible supply values to an annotation dynamically. Say I want the default message in the above piece of code to come from an Database Entity POJO. Is it possible to do this? If yes, how. Just a nudge in the right direction.
is it possible to set these values in the Validation class' initialize method?

i don't think it is possible... the values provided to any annotation is computed at compile time & not at runtime also the value provided must be constant, so its not possible to have the value come from a database..
