[REBOL] Data validation dialect
From: gerardcote:g:mail at: 18-Dec-2009 0:39
I'm now ready to begin to experiment some minimal GUI testing and data
validation for a small project of my own.
I already looked at an interesting proposed way to dynamically create
and validate input screens - in a way that permits some reuse of
(see Graham's work at
But for the most cumbersome and repetitive part, that is data
validation I didn't find any dialect DSL using REBOL to simplify the
complete specs definition part of the task.
However even if I plan to begin writing one myself, I would like if
any of you already did some work in this domain.
Also found some work in old rebol forces magazine about a data
generator dialect (from Joel Neely) that could be of some help
In the mean time, I found some links related to the subject of data
validation using DSL (dialects) that I would like to share with those
that have some interest relating to the subject :
Why current validation methods often fail (security issues) - where
and how to do it properly
Some more thoughts :
