You should enable the validator window with the toggle button on the 
left toolbar - it has a validate button to check all the OSM data you 
currently have loaded into JOSM, but don't get frightened the first time 
you'll see them all ;-)

There are still some minor maplint things that the validator won't 
notice/show, e.g. "unknown-tags" (probably based on map features list?).

However, if you you don't see any Validator problems in your area, 
you're doing already much better than the rest ;-)
