Validation of params in AWS API

Registered by Jesse Andrews on 2010-10-21

API paramaters aren't validated on execution. Before the method is ran, we should check if the required parameters are passed, and the values of the type expected.

Preferably we should implement the validation in a manner which allows generation of API documentation which shows the requirements. Nova/validate.py was meant to be a start of this by using decorators.

Whiteboard

This should be considered a bugfix rather than a feature, therefore I untargeted it.
Can we get this moved over to gerrit?
