Subject RE: Moving benchmark out of sandbox?
Date Tue, 15 Mar 2005 12:00:23 GMT
I took a spin around benchmark, and it looked good however..  

I think you need some sort of tutorial and demo.  Unlike other tools
like email,lang, which are very obvious how you use them (Answer: you
write code with them!), benchmark is more of a "tool".  There were
references to other tools that I didn't quite get, and maybe some sort
of sample report would be good.  Maybe run benchmark against the tomcat
codebase or something.

On a certain level, if my understanding is right that benchmark is a
tool, not a library, I somewhat wonder if this shouldn't be out from
under commons and part of some sort of jakarta project instead?

Building community is tough from the sandbox.  However, I have done it
with Configuration, (which is really thriving), and to a certain extent
with Email, although I need to get some of the contributors voted in as

When people express interest, grab 'em!  Ask for feedback, take their
concerns seriously, and pretty soon you'll be getting patches!

Thats a step in the right direction I guess ;)

I'll setup nightly builds and then blog about the benchmark package and 
what you can do with it... then build really nice javadoc.

I guess I'm getting ahead of myself because I want to integrate it 
within FeedParser :)
