WCSF geekSpeak: Validation Bundle Demo Code

This demo e based on the demo included in the Validation Bundle download.


The demo includes an entry form with three implementations:


  1. Using the traditional server-side validation.
  2. Using server-side validation with the Enterprise Library‘s Validation Application Block.
  3. Using server-side validation with the Enterprise Library‘s Validation Application Block and the WCSF‘s Server-Side Validation Extender.

Enterprise Library 3.1 Released

You can download here.

Before you get too excited, according to Tom Hollander, this is really just a maintenance release addressing a small number of issues discovered since the release of 3.0. Here is a summary of the main changes:

Policy Injection Application Block
  • The default Remoting Policy Injector can now be replaced with alternative interception mechanisms via configuration without modifying the application block code
  • Call Handler attributes are now honored correctly when placed on interface methods
  • Fixed an issue that could cause duplicate handlers where matching rules matched both a class and its interface
  • Classes implementing COM interfaces (including those deriving from System.Windows.Forms.Form) can now be intercepted
  • TraceLogEntry class is now serializable, allowing it to be used with the MSMQ Trace Listener
Validation Application Block
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the PropertyComparisonValidator from working with the Windows Forms integration adapter
  • The message template for the PropertyComparisonValidator can now be saved using the configuration tools.
Data Access Application Block
  • Connection strings for OLEDB and ODBC connections can now be edited using custom dialog boxes from the configuration tools
