Subject The value of src/core (or lack thereof)
Date Thu, 07 Apr 2005 10:39:07 GMT
Hi all,

The src/core directory was initially created to clearly separate the 
development of ECM++ and ensure it had no dependencies of other parts of 

All went well until we added some fancy features like includes, variable 
expansion, etc, which led an increasing number of classes to move from 
src/java to src/core. Having e.g. classes in the o.a.c.environment 
packages spread over the two directories is somewhat confusing.

What this shows is that although the Cocoon engine has very few 
dependencies on ECM++, ECM++ has an increasing number of dependencies on 
the Cocoon engine.

Since we recently added support for other component containers _inside_ 
ECM++, what is now the real value of src/core? Not much IMO.

So I propose to remove src/core and move all its content to src/java.
