    Question ISBNValidator

    Hi,

    I would like to use class ISBNValidator. I think this class should be in library commons-validator-1.3.1.jar, but there isn't any in org.apache.commons.validator.routines (one other ISBNValidator is in org.apache.commons.validator).

    Could anyone tell me where is the problem?

    //on deprecated list of package is also writen:
    "org.apache.commons.validator.ISBNValidator - Use the new ISBNValidator in the routines package"

    org.apache.commons.validator.routines.ISBNValidato r was introduced in v1.4, so you will not find it in any release prior to that. The org.apache.commons.validator.ISBNValidator should not be listed as deprecated in any API prior to version 1.4

    ok, but on Apache websites is only version 1.3.3 and I can't find latest version. I found only missing source classes on www.koders.com (example). Is there some place where I can download the library of version 1.4 or how can I put the missing files to the library? to which directory?

    Is there something wrong with using the ISBNValidator from 1.3? Like I said it wasn't deprecated until 1.4 If you want the latest, you will probably have to get the latest source from svn: Validator - Source Repository

    ISBNValidator from 1.3 doesn't work with ISBN13. That's the problem.

    I downloaded files that I need and then I inserted them into org.apache.commons.validator.routines (resp. org.apache.commons.validator.routines.checkdigit) location. But it doesn't work. When I look on these files in Netbeans IDE they have different icons from other classes in library. What should I do to make them work properly in the library?

    I have no clue why it doesn't work - you need to provide more information. Did you download .java files? .class files? Define 'doesn't work'

    Only .java files. When I put them to my default package (and change the package location to actual) it works how it should. But I want to put them into the validator .jar library I just don't know how. I have tried to insert .java files to /commons/proper/validator/trunk/src/main/java/org/apache/commons/validator/routines (resp. .../checkdigit).

    Compile the java files to class files, then add them to the library. I'm surprised the newest version isn't available as a jar. That being said, I'd recommend ditching the 1.3 library and get the fill Validator as opposed to adding 1.4 files to 1.3. This means you may have to retrieve the source from SVN, compile, and jar yourself. You will prevent any versioning conflicts this way
