Thor can now also handle client-side validation
I just updated my CFC based validation system called Thor with a jQuery example that shows how it can also handle client side validation.
Thor already does a solid job of validating user data on the server-side, but you may still need a solution for client-side validation. This can be difficult for many developers because it may require using two different validation systems. This means doubling the code to get any basic form up and running. And again, this can be difficult to manage and maintain.
This continuous client-side validation can be very handy if you have large html forms where it takes several minutes for the user to enter all the data. As they go through the process of entering data, they discover in 'real-time' if there are any problems. When the users gets to a submit button, they can be fairly certain that most if not all the data they have enter is correct. This can make the experience more enjoyable for the end user.
This process however can be very server chatty. So feel free to let me know how to it scales for your applications. The benefit of this is it's very easy to add on client-side validation and you can now have just one set of validation libraries that can handle both client and server side validation. There's no other ColdFusion based solution that I'm aware of that can handle this.
