·EA_OnStartValidation can be intercepted to perform any required processing prior to validation.
·The following functions intercept each request to validate an individual element, package, diagram, connector, attribute and method:
·EA_OnEndValidation can be intercepted to perform any required clean-up after validation has completed.
