|[wtp-dev] Validation Framework plans for WTP 3.2|
If you are the owner of a validator based on the WTP validation framework please continue to read this e-mail.
Starting with WTP 3.0, a new version of the WTP validation framework is available in the WTP Common Project (org.eclipse.wst.validation.* plug-ins). The majority of validators built on the previous version of the validation framework have since been migrated to the new framework. This migration allowed validator owners to take advantage of a host of new features such as improved filtering rules, dependency re-validation, caching, grouping and more. You can find more information about the new validation framework here
In order to improve consistency, minimize the maintenance effort and maximize the investment in improving the framework, we propose the following changes for WTP 3.2:
- migrate all remaining "version 1" validators to use the new APIs and
- deprecate the old validation framework APIs
If you agree with these plans, please create enhancements to track the changes to your validators and add them to your WTP 3.2 plans. You could choose to make them block https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=288953
If you have concerns or comments please respond to this note or comment in the bugzilla. Thank you.
