Subject Re: Upgrading JGlobus version 2.0.6-RC2
Date Sat, 13 Jul 2013 01:26:38 GMT
Committed initial changes relevant to following features.
I did primitive tests on them but certainly they are not sufficient.

I will write more unit tests for appropriate scenarios.
In the mean time if you encounter any failures/errors please yell at me.

Thanks
Amila
