Since the project file is where all the segment and parameter data is stored, it is important to maintain the validity of this file. The validation process is complicated and based on a set of rules defined in the stxconfig.xml file. Although validation should never generate errors, it can be a useful process, should you be experiencing problems with your project.
You can explicitly validate a project from the Workspace menu File > Project > Validate
You can control when your project is validated using the project attribute
Validation. Supported values are:
||do not validate|
||validate on load and save|
||validate on load|
||validate on save|
If you use validation, you are advised to sort your project entries by
ID, since this speeds up the validation process.
