Subject Re: cvs commit: jakarta-commons/httpclient/src/java/org/apache/commons/httpclient
Date Wed, 30 Oct 2002 13:13:23 GMT
Creating a new package org.apache.commons.uri implies creating a new 
Jakarta Commons subproject called URI.  Are you suggesting that we start 
a new project for this?  

Instead of saying HttpURL should be useful outside of HttpClient, you 
should have a related set of classes that are useful outside of 
httpclient.  It does not make much sense to created an Object Oriented 
reusable class  which isolated from others in its package.  HttpURL 
should use NameValuePair directly to provide for the simplest interface 
and reduce object conversion inside of HttpClient.  Then HttpURL and 
NameValuePair can be taken out of HttpClient (if desired at some point) 
and used together in somthing else.

You could move these two classes into the httpclient.util package to 
clearly denote them as classes that can be removed into own subproject 
 in the future.

Lets focus on making HttpClient clean, powerful and efficient right now.
