Subject RE: Proposal for the Commons Sandbox
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2004 15:08:34 GMT
Good point, and that occurred to me as well.  However I think Jestr is a little different from
the ToStringBuilder stuff because it isn't necessarily concerned with helping you implement
toString() methods; instead, it's more concerned with helping you log *arbitrary* objects,
even if you don't have access to their source code to change their toString() methods.

One could also argue that Jestr belongs as a subpackage under Commons Logging, but since Commons
Logging is explicitly *not* an implementation of anything but merely a thin interface, Jestr
doesn't seem to really belong there either.
