Subject RE: [collections][lang] Re: LazyList helper class for Factory creation
Date Wed, 18 Sep 2002 14:43:47 GMT
So, let me get this straight... This class exists. But not for Collections.
Rather, for another api in the sandbox (Pattern). But, Pattern needs to be
included with one of the other commons packages that already exists before
it will be possible to use it? Is patterns stable? Then let's get it in use!
:-) Someone pick a spot, put it there and let's go! :-))
