abstract class AbstractLoader implements LoaderInterface

Base loader for validation metadata.

This loader supports the loading of constraints from Symfony's default namespace (see {@link DEFAULT_NAMESPACE}) using the short class names of those constraints. Constraints can also be loaded using their fully qualified class names. At last, namespace aliases can be defined to load constraints with the syntax "alias:ShortName".
