Wicket Stuff HTML Validator

This validator filter is based upon the work of the validator filter created by the Tuckey developers. This validator only validates XHTML based on the XHTML DTDs. This package is licensed under the Gnu Public License.

We have provided the HTML Validator with extra settings to ignore non-DTD, but generally useful and accepted practises, such as the "autocomplete=false" attribute for text fields. We also added the ability to ignore a couple of Wicket encoding bugs where & characters were not converted to proper entities.

Usage

You can use it by adding the HtmlValidationResponseFilter to the Wicket request cycle filters in the following fashion:

public class MyApplication extends WebApplication {
    // ...

    @Override
    protected void init() {
        // only enable the markup filter in DEVELOPMENT mode
        if(DEVELOPMENT.equals(getConfigurationType())) {
            HtmlValidationResponseFilter htmlvalidator = new HtmlValidationResponseFilter();
            htmlvalidator.setIgnoreAutocomplete(true);
            htmlvalidator.setIgnoreKnownWicketBugs(true);
            getRequestCycleSettings()
                .addResponseFilter(htmlvalidator);
        }
    }
}

And you're all set. Make sure you define a XHTML doctype in your pages, such as:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
    <title>Foo</title>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Building

This project requires Apache Maven (>= 2.0.9) to be built. Just perform a mvn install and include the following in your project's pom:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.wicketstuff</groupId>
    <artifactId>htmlvalidator</artifactId>
    <version>1.3.1</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
</dependency>

If you wish to deploy the markup filter, you should change the scope to compile.
