[REBOL] Data validation dialect

From: gerardcote:gm:ail at: 18-Dec-2009 0:39

Hi, 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 initial declarations. (see Graham's work at http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/REBOL_Programming/Language_Features/Parse/Screen_Validation) 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 (http://www.rebolforces.com/zine/rzine-1-02/) 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 of you that have some interest relating to the subject : Why current validation methods often fail (security issues) - where and how to do it properly ================================================================== http://research.corsaire.com/whitepapers/060116-a-modular-approach-to-data-validation.pdf Some more thoughts : ================ http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?SeparateDomainFromPresentation Properties- model ============= http://parasol.cs.tamu.edu/~jarvi/papers/gpce08.pdf Issues related to User-interfaces (related to the Olivanova method) ======================== http://www.upgrade-cepis.org/issues/2003/1/up4-1Molina.pdf A form data validation DSL using Ajax and JS ================================= http://ojay.othermedia.org/articles/forms.html Regards, Gerard
