Subject [daemon] [VOTE] Code reorg and API changes
Date Mon, 07 Oct 2002 14:21:50 GMT
As was discussed a while ago with Costin and a few others, it appears 
that the daemon API is inadequate, and a refactoring is proposed.

The reorg is:
- Removal of the daemon API (org.apache.commons.daemon), to be replaced 
by pure introspection. The rationale for this was discussed with Costin 
at the time.
- Creation of a commons-launcher component to host the launcher code now 
used in the upcoming Tomcat 5. It turns out the merge with Ant will not 
happen in the forseeable future, and the functionality is useful in 
Tomcat, so I think we should keep the code in the commons, and wait for 
it to be "picked up" :)
- As a consequence, the "daemon" module will be renamed to "launcher". 
It is also proposed that the resulting module be moved to commons proper.
