Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Validation - We need a common framework!

Jason doesn't like my Validator that matches two fields. I was just trying to help the Struts Community out by solving a problem that many have asked for. Oh well, I guess those WebWork folks will take any opportunity to bash on Struts ;-).

This is just another example of Struts making the common things hard. I'm more and more glad we went with Webwork, and once Xwork 1.0 / Webwork 2.0 are here, I'll be in nerdvana. [Jason Carreira]

Personally, I still think the Commons Validator is easier - you don't have to write any .java files in most cases (except for my extension, which will hopefully soon be added). I do like the ExpressionValidator - that looks cool. All in all, I think I'd bash on WebWork a little more - but I don't know enough about it. Where's the book ;-)

BTW, this post was sent (and edited!) via NetNewsWire. Very cool - but no titles.

These are web app frameworks we're talking about. It's not EJB or AOP or anything THAT complex. In other words, if it needs a book, then you've done it wrong :-)

Keep in mind that this post will immediately self destruct if anyone asks me to write a book about Webwork :-)

Oh, and it wasn't your validator I didn't like... it was the configuration and hoops you have to jump through to do validation in Struts.
