RE: [tigerstripe-dev] Tigerstripe model validation

Title: Re: [tigerstripe-dev] Tigerstripe model validation
Eric and team,
I understood the validation plugin is in planning phase. The TIP team are planning to develop a validator to examine TIP models (against some TIP specific check points). We hope the TIP model validator can be built on the basis of Tigerstripe model validator, or at least in the same direction and easy to integrate/align at the (very) near future.
Do you have any suggestion? Any design information or prototype/poc can share?
best regads,

We won’t mind doing some coding for it as a number of the rules are likely to be SID/TIP specific.

We would just like to be sure it is inserted in the right place using the right extension point.


Best regards

Hi Zhao,

So far, validation has been done through “validation” plugins which basically create a report. This is triggered like any other plugin.
We have been thinking about something a bit more interactive (that would lead to reporting problems in the problems view). This sounds like a good candidate for that.

The key thing here is to make it configurable enough to be relevant to various models and be generic.

So, we could define some generic rules to be turned on/off and tuned/configured. Maybe these would be part of the profile? Maybe they would be separate.

Note that the auditors do support some extension points to add specific behavior. But maybe we want to make it a bit more configurable rather than having users write an Eclipse plugin and some Java code. We are in planning phase now... So now is a good time to speak up and propose ideas :-).

Patterns? Single rules? Naming conventions?

Hi team,

I'm wondering if Tigerstripe workbench provides model validation functionalities. Sample use cases would be to check a Tigerstripe model project to find:

1) all Entity artifacts inheriting from AssociationClass artifacts
2) all Association Class artifact inheriting from Entity artifacts
3) all artifact descriptions containing illegal characters

Does current workbench support these cases, or any extension points available for implementing such cases and other specific validation rules?

kind regards,
