Validation by external file - entlib 6

Topics: Validation Application Block
Aug 14, 2013 at 10:10 AM
I have SLN that contains WebSite (MVC 4) and Class Liberary BL.
The Validations are in BL, the object to validate sent from the Controller.
I wish to Configure Validation in external file - entlib.config, who created by entlib console.
I'm trying to create a reference between the Web.config to entlib.config

I mean, I do not know where to put the entlib.config, That the Web.config will recognize.
I tried to place it in the BIN directory of the WEB SITE, but it did not help.
I tried to place it in the WEB.CONFIG - same thing

any Idea?

There is an issue in Enterprise Library 5 with relative paths and FileConfigurationSource: .

The issue was resolved in Enterprise Library 5 Optional Update 1 (version 5.0.505.0). So, the solution is to upgrade to that version or to use an absolute file path (or to use one of the workarounds suggested in the issue comments).
