Subject [jira] Updated: (CLI-131) Options class returns options in random order
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2007 07:20:25 GMT


Brian Egge updated CLI-131:

    Attachment: bug131.patch

Fix the issue by sorting the options inside the HelpFormatter class.  This fix would be the
least likely to cause problems with existing usage.

Another option would be to have the Options class use TreeMaps instead of HashMaps.

> The help formatter auto usage returns the options in a somewhat random order.  This is
because the options are inserted in a HashMap, and then a copy of the collection is returned
with the getOptions() method.
> The getOptions method should return the options in the order they were added, or in a
sorted order.
