Subject [clazz] Naming
Date Tue, 29 Oct 2002 00:52:45 GMT
Naming is always a tricky issue, especially when we get to a fundamental
level such as this.

Meta class names
Class, Field, Method

Names proposed for [clazz]:
MetaBean, MetaProperty, MetaOperation*
MetaClazz, MetaProperty, MetaOperation
Clazz, Attribute, Operation
AClass, AField, AMethod
Class, Field, Method

Instance class names
Object, ., .
bean, property, method.

Names proposed for [clazz]:
Bean, Property, Operation*

MetaData name

All of the[clazz] basic classes should be interfaces.
The meta class names should relate to the instance class names.

I still favour the names marked with a * as being a consistent set
independent of reflection/Java, but still well known names.
