ValidateThis! No Longer Relies on Coldspring

In an effort to make ValidateThis!, my validation framework for ColdFusion objects, as easy as possible to integrate into existing applications, I decided to remove its reliance on Coldspring. I was just using Coldspring for internal Dependency Injection (DI), and as there aren't really that many components that make up the framework it wasn't that difficult a change to make. So now the framework is truly DI framework agnostic, as well as being Persistence Layer framework agnostic.

I hope to release version 0.7 soon, which will include these changes, as well as the new ValidateThis Service Object, which allows for super-simple integration.

Having less dependencies will help :-)

Bob Silverberg's Gravatar That's cool, Tom. Once you guys have something ready to test I'd be happy to do some testing, attempting to implement VT into your new validation scheme.
