Subject [jira] [Commented] (VALIDATOR-292) [PATCH] @localhost and @localhost.localdomain email addresses aren't correctly detected as valid
Date Mon, 16 May 2011 16:52:47 GMT


Nick Burch commented on VALIDATOR-292:

Following discussions with commons committers at the Apache Retreat, I've re-worked the patch
to follow the same design as validators such as the ISBN validator. By default, the domain
and email validators will continue to declare localhost as invalid (as they always have done).
For most people, this will be correct. For anyone running in a development environment (where
localhost is wanted to be valid), a boolean can be passed when fetching the validator instance
to toggle this. 

New patch for this pattern attached, along with unit tests.
