Subject Re: Filter transformer - default block size?
Date Mon, 03 Dec 2007 06:18:41 GMT
Thank you for clarifying that.  I do not wish to implement a special version
only for my own purposes (I can find a work-a-round for now) .  Would it 
be possible that such an amendment be considered for future versions?
(It does seem like a potentially useful option).

no, the current implementation does not provide a way to change the
default for count.

You can extend the transformer and make it implement either Configurable
or Parameterizable to change the default values. An example for this is
the EncodeURLTransformer which reads default information in the
"configure" method and then uses these as defaults in the "setup" method.
