Hi,
do you have any guidelines, instructions and examples how to do SAEF/Form validation for both methods: server-side and client-side??
I found somewhere some EE PHP classes for form validation (form_validation) but don’t know how to implement them.
I also read somewhere that one should use jquery (which is available in v2.0) for client-side form validation but don’t know how to implement this either.
Any help would be appreciated?

have not done it server side but I believe it should honor your EE settings of required fields at least.
