Optional Validation

Validation is optional in Navision code. From an object-oriented background, this has always bothered me. From a conceptual level, why is validation optional? Is it a performance compromise? My preference is to write very reliable code and I see optional validation as a risk factor in long term maintenance.

Not only is it optional, but the default is to not validate. Dave Studebaker das@libertyforever.com Liberty Grove Software A Navision Services Partner

Personally, I don’t have an issue with validation being optional. There is always a time in data cleanup where things have to be done without it. I do think the default should be validation occurring. This would save alot of problems for people I’m sure. Chris Krantz NCSD,NCSQL,MCSD,MCSE Microforum Inc. Toronto, Ontario, Canada
