If it is done on internal representation - then how errors are supposed to be propagated to the HTML generator (which works on the key value pairs)?

By having a bi-directional mapping between the internal representation and the key-values pairs

How to interface with specialized data validating libraries?

Callbacks might be a solution

When form should be saved to the database? Obviously only when it has valid parameters - but some people also check the HTTP method and other things.

IMHO saving things to a database is not job of the form processor. It could create objects that can be stored into the database with a single method call, but it shouldn't do it - that's the job of the controlling method that called the form processor in the first place.

When values should be loaded from the database?

Same answer as above.

IMHO a form processor shouldn't talk to the database at all, at least not directly. For example the callbacks that validate input data could talk to the database, but having a form processor do that seems like over stretching its task.

Could it be that you have a full CRUD framework in mind, not just a form processor?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
