Smooks 1.2 adds support for message data Validation as one of its new features. This new feature allows you to perform strong field and fragment validation on not just XML data, but also on EDI, JSON, CSV etc. It currently supports Regex and MVEL rules bases (Drools to follow). Regex rules allow you to perform low level field format validation, while MVEL rules allow you to perform Business rules validation at a fragment/message level.
Yeah, we of the Smooks project are also going to do it. Start blogging about our project. The blog is the perfect place to inform you about the latest things that are going on. With this blog we want to get our idea’s out there and introduce you to the latest features of Smooks. You can also expect posts with small tutorials featuring common, experimental or less know features of Smooks or one of it’s child projects.
