      Description

      I notice that Thrift IDL has no user-defined parameter validating mechanism at present, which is a common need for web services. As for Protobuf, the parameter validation gets community supports like PGV (protoc-gen-validate), benefiting from its strong plugin mechanism. If we can use build tools to generate codes for simple and unchangeable constraint, the web service will be more robust and developers will benefit from lighter work. Take a long-term view, auto-generated parameter validation may be a step towards code-less web services.
      Here I propose the Validation Annotation for meeting this need.
