General Discussion

I'm wondering if the ValidatingHttpRequest code provided was tested, or provided more as pseudo-code. The issue I'm having is that validate throws ValidationException. Hence getParameter() and all other overridden methods that call validate() will need to catch the exception (can't be thrown). What can be done with that exception? Also, when the exception is thrown, what should be returned?
