Subject RE: [VOTE][collections] Functors, dependency from collections to lang
Date Fri, 13 Dec 2002 17:42:09 GMT
This issue is that [collections] is in wide use. Stephens proposal allows
all existing applications to use the future releases (of [commons]) without
code change, only requiring that commons-lang.jar be added as a dependency.
This is especially important if your application depends on third party
software (that you don't have source code access to) that also depends on
[commons].

I may be missing something but Stephen's proposal is to deprecate and 
not remove public classes from collections. I don't see the issue in 
adding a dependency on the next release of collections.
