We are so excited to bring you a major release for cbValidation! cbValidation has been around for quite some time and it was about time to give a major boost in development. We have also completely rewritten the documentation to make it more attractive and user-friendly (https://coldbox-validation.ortusbooks.com/). Enjoy!

Release Notes

2.1.0

  • feature : Added constraintProfiles to allow you to define which fields to validate according to defined profiles: https://github.com/coldbox-modules/cbvalidation/issues/37
  • feature : Updated RequiredUnless and RequiredIf to use struct literal notation instead of the weird parsing we did.
  • feature : Added the Unique validator thanks to @elpete!
  • improvement : Added null support for the RequiredIf,RequiredUnless validator values

2.0.0

Features

  • No more manual discovery of validators, automated registration and lookup process, cleaned lots of code on this one!
  • New Validator: Accepted - The field under validation must be yes, on, 1, or true. This is useful for validating "Terms of Service" acceptance.
  • New Validator: Alpha - Only allows alphabetic characters
  • New Validator: RequiredUnless with validation data as a struct literal { anotherField:value, ... } - The field under validation must be present and not empty unless the anotherfield field is equal to the passed value.
  • New Validator: RequiredIf with validation data as a struct literal { anotherField:value, ... } - The field under validation must be present and not empty if the anotherfield field is equal to the passed value.
  • Accelerated validation by removing type checks. ACF chokes on interface checks

Improvements

  • Consistency on all validators to ignore null or empty values except the Required validator
  • Formatting consistencies
  • Improve error messages to describe better validation
  • Get away from evaluate() instead use invoke()

Compat & Bugs

  • Bugs : Fixed lots of wrong type exceptions
  • Compat : Remove ACF11 support

Using CommandBox Docker Images to Perform Bytecode Source Conversions

Using CommandBox Docker Images to Perform Bytecode Source Conversions

There are times when code needs to be shipped in a compiled state. It might be for obfuscation or source protection, it might just because it runs faster that way, without the CFML server needing to compile templates at runtime. It's an excellent use case for production Docker images and code deploy pipelines.
