Add methods to return boolean from Validate.java instead of throwing IllegalArgumentException
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: LANG-458
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-458
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Improvement
         Environment: software
            Reporter: Viraj Turakhia
            Priority: Minor


I am using Validate.java since long and find it difficult to use when I just want to validate
collections or string.
With current interface, I go like this:

while(cnt < list.size()) {
    List list1 = list.get(cnt);
    try {
        Validate.notEmpty(list1);
    } catch(IllegalArgumentException e) {
        continue;
    }
}

much better approach is:

while(cnt < list.size()) {
    List list1 = list.get(cnt);
    try {
    if(! Validate.notEmpty(list1)) {
        continue;
    }
}

If you all agree with this change, I am willing to submit a patch for this.
