Feature: #83167 - Replace @validate with @TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Annotation\Validate

See Issue #83167

Description

As a successor to the @validate annotation, the doctrine annotation @TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Annotation\Validate has been introduced.

Example:

/**
 * @TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Annotation\Validate
 * @var Foo
 */
public $property;

Doctrine annotations are actual defined classes, therefore you can also use the annotation with a use statement.

Example:

use TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Annotation\Validate;
/**
 * @Validate
 * @var Foo
 */
public $property;

Used annotations can also be aliased which the core will most likely be using a lot in the future.

Example:

use TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Annotation as Extbase;
/**
 * @Extbase\Validate
 * @var Foo
 */
public $property;

Impact

In v9 there is no actual impact. Both the simple @validate and @TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Annotation\Validate can be used side by side. However, @validate is deprecated in v9 and will be removed in v10.
