Hi everyone,

I have recently been working on a small bit of code to do server side
validation in helma. The code works by reading a properites file
(data.properties) located inside each prototype with syntax such as:

title.datatype = alpha
title.required = true
title.maxlength = 5

firstName.datatype = name
firstName.required = true
firstName.maxlength = 32

phone.datatype = phone-au
phone.required = true
phone.maxlength = 16

ageGroup.datatype = digit
ageGroup.required = false

The validation then can be done via a function:
I also have a utility function for splitting up fields in req.data "by
prefix" for forms with fields which correspond to 2 or more different

So I wanted to ask if there would be any interest in including this code
as a new module within jala?
It would need a bit of cleanup to meet the high standards set by the
existing jala code, but I'd be happy to implement any feedback if that
was the case.
