To restrict Javax validation

I will have to validate my JSON, before persisting it to the database as JSON(clob). To serve this purpose, I have used javax annotations and also custom annotations on my model class. The validation is happening as expected and it works just fine.
But, if I have to retrieve the JSON and map it to my model class, javax validation will jump in again. As it does not make sense to validate a JSON, which I already did while persisting it, I want to know, if there is a way to by-pass the validation while mapping the JSON to model class.

One alternative I can think of is, to have a similar model class, without any annotations and use this to map my JSON, while retrieving it. But, its a lame alternative.

Suggestions are welcome.

I think you're trying to be too efficient.

Just because you ensured that the JSON was valid when you wrote it out to the database doesn't mean that some toe-rag can't come in and mess it up using a database utility program.

One thing that Murphy has taught me in a long and evil career is to trust no one and nothing and I'd count the cost of validation on fetched data as a small price to pay.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
