Subject Re: [resources] plans...?
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2003 23:39:00 GMT
I have my own code at work that does resource management. From the quick
look I took at [resources] it was more flexible, so in my dream world of
infinite time to work on commons, I was going to add stuff to [resources].

Ideas include:
- Main interface supports direct access to multiple types of resource:
  - String
  - List of Strings
  - Map (ordered) of String to Strings
  - XML structure
  - perhaps others, such as Integer, Boolean, and any other bean

- Resource chaining
  - To allow multiple files to be merged into one (an 'extends' keyword for
resources)
  - for a large product where the product has a fixed base configuration,
and users should override the base configuration rather than change it

Anyone know where I can buy an infinite time machine....;-)
