Validate and present validation results effectively

I've released version 1.0.1 of the free JGoodies Validation,
a library that helps you validate user input in Swing apps
and that helps you report validation errors and warnings.
This release fixes bugs, and it comes with improved sources,
docs and references. For details see the RELEASE-NOTES.txt.

The Validation library is licensed under the terms of
the BSD open source license and is available at no charge.
This library has been designed to work with different
architectures and programming flavors, and it works with
standard and custom components, containers, and models.
It just requires Java 1.4 or later.

The Validation library provides a flexible and powerful
data validation infrastructure, assists you in separating
validation concerns, includes advanced validation result
presentations, and the accompanying tutorial demonstrates
a whole bunch of input and validation techniques.

Please do not send personal mail if you have
questions around the Validation. Instead please follow
the support instructions described in the README.html
and at the project home page. Basically you should use
the user mailing lists at!

It is recommended to read the Validation presentation
at the JGoodies articles page. Since the accompanying
tutorial uses the JGoodies Binding, a basic understanding
of Swing models and data binding techniques will help.

I've recently posted background information at
about the motivation for writing this library, some
design decisions and my role as library provider, see

The Validation library has been financed by customers
of the JGoodies Swing Suite and by the Sun desktop crew.
It is only with their money that I can provide, maintain,
and improve this library at no charge. If you save time
and money using the Validation, please help me finance
my Java desktop activities by licensing the commercial
JGoodies Swing Suite.

I hope the JGoodies Validation helps you implement your
input validation and validation result presentation.

Best regards,
Karsten Lentzsch
