Validating objects that need to be dependency injected

We have objects that live inside an AMF layer and through the application layer code, we are attempting to validate names using custom annotations; however, we are not using any dependency injection tools (as everything needs to be custom) and currently wondering how to fetch a name attribute value from the other layer. Are there any Hibernate functionalities that allow this?

I’m not sure I understand what you’re trying to do? Could you explain it a bit more and maybe add an example?
