[wtp-dev] Enablement _expression_ support
in validator ext point
The support for enablement _expression_ as shown below has been added to
the validator extension point. The facet filters support added in the validator
ext point in addition to natures did not scale very well and additional
requirements from some extended teams drove the need for the enablement
support which scales very well. This _expression_ support covers all
the combinations that the FacetedProjectPropertyTester
provides as this is the tester class that is used under the covers for
property and value strings.
The ejb validator is changed to use this support instead of facet filters
The facet filters support still exists and works in the validator ext point
even though it is redundant with this enablement support. The reason it
is still supported is for the fact that we are not supposed to break any
internal api also at this point for 1.5. Validators using facet filters
will continue to work as is and the any validators that need the enablement
_expression_ support can migrate.
