Subject Re: [vfs][all][poll][RESULT] regular expression library or jdk1.4 as minimum requirement
Date Tue, 15 Jun 2004 06:10:43 GMT
Thanks for your support!

4 Avoid dependency to jdk1.4.
0 ... use jakarta-regexp
2 ... use jakarta-oro
0 ... use the regexp bundled with ant.
2 Dont bother and use jdk1.4 as minimum requirement (and its regexp)

So it is clear to me, that jdk1.4 is no option for vfs for now and i can 
follow your doubts.
jakarta-oro seems a very powerfull solution, but even if is intentaion 
was only to be an interface - its size has reached 100K - i already hear 
others yelling ;-)

Might it be possible to split the discovery/interfaces (use 
class.forName for its own implementations too) and the implementation to 
have a small(er) "discovery library"?
For sure, i know it IS possible ;-), the question is, is this something 
the ORO project would like to do, or could this be a starting point to 
refactor ORO and build a "commons-RegexpDiscovery", or move the 
implementations to jakarta-regexp, or ....
