Tom Hollander is revealing on his blog an interesting new inclusion in the future release (v3) of Enterprise Library, the Validation Application Block.

The Validation Application Block will include a comprehensive library of common validation rules that apply to primitive data types. For example, we'll include rules like string length, numeric range, date range, regular expressions and so on.

You can find the December 2006 CTP (Community Technology Preview) of Enterprise Library 3.0 at the following link: http://www.codeplex.com/entlib

Here's a list of validators supplied in the VAB.

Update: David Hayden presents the Features of Validation Application Block
