Subject Re: [lang] scope for version 2
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2003 22:27:58 GMT

Been a while since the last one of these, so I expect a few bits to be
missing. Feel free to chime in on things I've missed:

Next release will be Lang 2.0.

 Lang 2.0 scope:
================
org.apache.commons.lang.math.*
  Fraction. Various ranges. Bugfix in NumberRange.

org.apache.commons.lang.util.*
   BitField: Mature class used in POI. Need to confer with POI on this.
   Validate: It tests boolean possibilities and throws IllegalArgumentExceptions if they are
false.

org.apache.commons.lang.functor.*
   There is obviously a clash with Collections here, which Lang seeks to
resolve. Also there is a clash with Rodney's [Functor] package. From what
I understand, despite the similar naming, [Functor] goes a lot further
into the concepts than .functor does, with .functor being a simpler setup
etc. I'm going on hearsay though, not having looked at the code yet.

 Not in scope:
==============
org.apache.commons.lang.time.*
org.apache.commons.lang.reflect.*
org.apache.commons.lang.Notif*   [DELETED]


 Discussion
===========
The order of stack-traces in ExceptionUtils.  [see Bugzilla]
New trim method variants in StringUtils.  [see Bugzilla]
New methods in ExceptionUtils  [A thread started by Gary]
null handling in StringUtils

chomp changing in StringUtils  [Alex]
StringUtils performance handling  [submitted privately to my email]

join(.., char) methods  [Henning's baby]

Enum issues    [Stephen's been fielding these]
Builder issues [Again, Stephen's area]


I'll work on improving these with bug#'s next and resend.

Afaik, Lang is:

Gary
Alex
Steve
Stephen
Henri
Daniel
Robert

Status of coders:

Alex and Gary are both patching into StringUtils at the moment.
Robert is working on reflect.
Henri/Stephen, worrying about 2.0.
Steve?
Daniel is usually pretty busy at work, but is our wise Apache backbone


Hen
