Subject new functionality in some of the commons classes - contd
Date Sat, 22 Nov 2003 21:01:51 GMT
Hello again,

Adding to my earlier email I just sent out, I wish to give an example here, 
of some of the ideas I have.

The concept of a "naught" String.

A String is naught if it is either 'null' or is the literal "null".

I have often encountered this situation in my JSP project where a particular 
parameter is passed in
as x=null, and I need to insert code everytime saying if(x == null || 
x.equals("null"))

Perhaps others have encountered a similar situation. I thus propose the 
following functionality in the
org.apache.commons.lang.StringUtils class:

StringUtils.isNaught(String str)


And more such to go. Waiting for some feedback.
Thanks,
Ash

Subject: new functionality in some of the commons classes


Hello all,

I am new to the list, and am here after my recent (and really exciting)
discovery of the existence of this whole treasure of day-to-day usage
code in the name of the Commons project.

I would like to propose/contribute some new functionality to some
of the classes (mostly simple stuff). Do let me know the procedure
for this. If there is a standard document which explains this,
which I missed, please give me a pointer to it.

Thanks,

Keep up the good work,
Ash
