  <title>Proposal for Validator Library Package</title>

  <h1>Proposal for <em>Validator</em> Package</h1>
  </div>
  
  <h3>(0) Rationale</h3>
  
  <p>There is a need for the validation of JavaBeans to validate 
  user input from forms and validate business rules.  There is also a 
  need to define different validation rules and error messages based on 
  the user's locale.
  </p>
  
  <p>The Validator package will provide the capability to configure 
  validators (validation methods) with different method signatures.  
  So the basic framework can have an interface built on it to deal 
  with validations on web layers, ejb layers, etc.
  </p>
  
  <h3>(1) Scope of the Package</h3>
  
  <p>The package shall create and maintain a package that provides 
  basic validation functionality.
  </p>
  
  <p>
  The package should :
  <ul>
  <li>Provide in an easy way to define validations for fields</li>
  <li>Provide internationalization support for validation rules and error messages.</li>
  <li>Provide an easy way to define validators</li>
  <li>Provide a way to store information in a validator definition so JavaScript client

      side validation can be auto-generated matching the server side validation.</li>
  </ul>
  </p>
  
  <p>
  Non-goals:
  <ul>
  <li>This package does not auto-generate JavaScript client side code.</li>
  </ul>
  </p>
  
  <h3>(1.5) Interaction With Other Packages</h3>
  
  <p><em>Validator</em> relies on:
  </p>
  
  <ul>
    <li>Jakarta Regexp</li>
  </ul>
  
  <h3>(2) Required Jakarta-Commons Resources</h3>
  
  <ul>
    <li>Commons BeanUtils</li>
    <li>Commons Collections</li>
    <li>Commons Digester</li>
  </ul>
  
  <ul>
  <li>CVS Repository - New directory <code>validator</code> in the 
  <code>jakarta-commons</code> CVS repository.</li>
  
  <li>Initial Committers - The list is provided below. </li>
  
  <li>Mailing List - Discussions will take place on the general
  <em>commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org</em> mailing list. To help list
  subscribers identify messages of interest, it is suggested that the
  message subject of messages about this component be prefixed with
  [Validator].</li>
  
  <li>Bugzilla - New component "Validator" under the "Commons" product
  category, with appropriate version identifiers as needed.</li>
  
  <li>Jyve FAQ - New category "commons-validator" (when available).</li>
  </ul>
  
  
  <h3>(4) Initial Committers</h3>
  
  <p>The initial committers on the Validator component shall be:</p>

  <h3>1.  INTRODUCTION</h3>
  
  
  <p> The commons-validator package provides a simple, extendable

  in an xml file.  There is support for internationalization of 
  validation rules and error messages.
  </p>
  
  <p>
  The package should :
  <ul>
  <li>Provide in an easy way to define validations for fields</li>
  <li>Provide internationalization support for validation rules and error messages.</li>
  <li>Provide an easy way to define validators</li>
  <li>Provide a way to store information in a validator definition so JavaScript client

      side validation can be auto-generated matching the server side validation.</li>
  </ul>
  </p>

  <h3>4.  COMMITTERS</h3>
  
  <p>The following individuals are the primary developers and maintainers of this
  component.  Developers who plan to use <em>Validator</em> in their own
  projects are encouraged to collaborate on the future development of this
  component to ensure that it continues to meet a variety of needs.</p>
