Subject Re: Alita-validator Proposal
Date Sun, 01 Nov 2020 09:53:05 GMT
Hi Ran Ke

I did a quick review of the project you proposed, due to it is in Chinese
basically, very few IPMC members could understand the project from the read
I need to point out
1. The project has a very small community, you are the only one committed
codes. The other two, you listed on the proposal have no commit to the repo.
2. No issue exists, which makes me feel, the project is in the very early
stage, still leaks of users.

I would suggest you build the community first, at least you have active
contributors(not just you, at least have a small group of people).
Try to connect with qualified mentors(Apache members or Incubator PMC
members) to get started. You need to prepare the proposal(more about the
project and community themselves) for a longer time and need some guidance.
Such as try to ask at for ALC(Apache Local
Community) Beijing, to see whether there is a volunteer(s) to help.

> Alita-validator Proposal
> Abstract
> Alita-validator is a simple and easy-to-use API verifier. It provides
> custom business code and business message and returns it to API consumers.
> Users can customize error return packaging.
> Users can extend some non generic business related verifiers themselves.
> Unlike JSR 380 bean validation standard, alita-validator does not throw an
> exception when the validation fails. Instead, it returns the code and
> message set by the user to the API caller.
> At present, the functions are implemented based on spring AOP, and future
> plans are made:
> * Provide different implementations for non spring projects
> * Add more universal validator
> * Provide the way to handle the failure of selection verification: return
> the message to the API caller / throw an exception
> The goal of alita-validator is to enable users to focus more on business
> logic. The validation of API parameters is handed over to alita-validator
> to save the code of validation parameters.
> Proposal
> Alita-validator is still young and not strong enough. I hope that more
> people can know it, develop and strengthen it by donating it to Apache.
> Background
> In the past, when I was doing API development, there was always a lot of
> code to do parameter verification. Many of these codes were repetitive and
> boring.
> Although there is JSR 380 bean validation standard and there are many
> implementations, these implementations throw the failed message as an
> exception, and there is no corresponding code for the message.
> As an API, I want to tell the caller of the API the reason why the
> verification failed so that the corresponding processing can be done.
> For example, for the API based on HTTP, the parameters often come from the
> user's input. The UI can handle these error messages and let the user know
> in some way.
> Rationale
> Alita-validator is developed in Java, which provides API parameter
> validation capability through annotations. Annotations can be used on
> method parameters or in attributes of Java beans.
> Through the combination of various verifier annotations, the verification
> of API parameters can be realized. For example, verify whether a string is
> email, and verify that a password meets the complexity requirements, etc.
