Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Changing Source interface
Date Sun, 19 Aug 2001 02:26:37 GMT
BTW, I just added a module to Excalibur's Scratchpad, that may
be incorporated soon.  It is an active resource monitor.  This
would be the perfect replacement for Source, or as a base class
for Source.

What it allows you to do is hide the logic for re-reading the
resource in a PropertyChangeListener.  The ActiveMonitor checks
the resources every X milliseconds (you can set it to whatever
you like).  The PropertyChangeListener is notified with the
Resource key (name) and the modification times (as Long objects).
That way it can do all the recycling and management from there.
