Subject [lang] FastDateFormat questions
Date Thu, 19 Dec 2002 12:26:14 GMT
Here's where I am at with FastDateFormat.  I changed the package name 
(to org.apache.commons.lang.time.)  I also pulled down the source code 
for Pair that it required.  I noticed that Pair seemed like the 
DefaultMapEntry in commons-collections (am I wrong?)  Is commons-lang 
allowed to have dependencies with commons-collections or should we try 
to avaoid that?  (My guess is you will say avoid.)

I'm thinking of making Pair just an inner class for FastDateFormat since 
we probably don't need it elsewhere.  Perhaps there is an existing java 
class that I am not aware of that could replace it entirely?

Finally, I wrote a few unit tests for FastDateFormat.  Once we resolve 
the Pair issue I'd like to submit FastDateFormat and FastDateFormatTests 
to be added to CVS.  Do we need all of the unit tests to be complete 
before adding?  There are a lot to write and I know Eric, and others are 
also volunteering to help here.
