Simple Descriptor 0.1.0

Hi all

A while ago I had a walk among some of the plugins/gem available to add
reflection on validations and/or force constraints on the database to
be forced on Active Record models.

Since that moment I started thinking about a more declarative manner to
manage and standardize the validations and to have the "validation
rules" available in the views.
I ended up writing something more generic than my initial idea, because
I noticed soon I didn't need just the validation information about my
model but even some other extra which were related to the class.

Today, I'm releasing Simple Descriptor v 0.1.0 (yes, it's a early
release). It's a small piece of code that lets you add some chunk of
informations to your class/models.
The library doesn't depend from rails gems, so maybe it can be
interesting even outside of the rails world.

The docs of the project can be found here

http://simpledesc.rubyforge.org/docs/

They're not complete, I may try to add some more in the future. I think
what is provided now doesn't give enough ideas about how you can use
the library.
For the moment you may want to take a look at the tests to see some
more sample of usage.

The rubyforge page of the project is

http://rubyforge.org/projects/simpledesc/

The library is distributed as a gem.

Any comment/contribution is very welcome.

Thanks

Paolo
