Subject Re: Validation Framework [VOTE] (was Re: Proposal for ValidationFramework)
Date Wed, 05 Dec 2001 19:44:10 GMT
It's been in the Struts contrib folder and under Apache CVS for some
time, and can be checked out there or at David's site.

We almost kept it for Struts 1.1, but since it is not Struts specific,
it was decided to bring it up here instead.

The same thing is happening with Cedric's Tiles library. It can be used
with Struts, but also plays well with others, so we are proposing that
to Taglibs.
