Subject Re: [Validator] Next Release
Date Fri, 12 Nov 2004 09:31:45 GMT
I would like to address the importance of bug #30955 
( Currently, 
form definition processing isn't working properly. I was thinking of 
changing severity to major to raise attention. Please do take a look and 
tell me what you think.

>I doubt form inheritance has been tested completely since it hasn't been
>included in a release yet.  
I have extensively used form inheritance (I sent the patch). If you take 
a close look at the changes involved you'd notice that special care was 
taken to minimize impact on the rest of the code. I beleive form 
inheritance could take Validator one step forward. If #30955 gets solved 
it would even get more useful.

I know that it is out of the scope of this mailing list but I would like 
to say that using validator with struts is sort of painful when using 
DynaValidatorForm. You have at least 4 hard coded parameter definitions 
(struts-config.xml, validation.xml, the view and the action).  I have 
seen that the preferred direction for validator is not form validation 
but bean validation. It would be nice though if we could have a single 
form definition with its simple commons-validator validations. What do 
you think? Should I post this in the struts mailing list?
