CDI and Bean Validation in JEE 5 Application Server?

CDI and Bean Validation are JEE 6 Standard Specifications. Nevertheless, I can use both within JEE 5 Application Servers (and also within Java SE) by just adding the libraries to the project.

Is this correct?

Are there any disadvantages of using both in JEE 5 application servers instead of JEE 6 application servers?

I have to use the Oracle 11 g Suite and JDeveloper. In the meantime, JDeveloper supports JSF 2.0, but I cannot find any support for Bean Validation or CDI. Nevertheless, this is not a problem. There is no IDE support (for code-generation, a step-by-step-guide, or whatever), but I can use these libraries by using the simple java editor. Right?

Thank you in advance for help...

Best regards,
