Subject [sandbox] Component ideas
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2008 06:46:06 GMT
On the adding components to the sandbox bit that Matt raised; here are
some I'd like to bring in. It's stuff from osjava that I haven't found
replacements that I like yet:

payload - self-extracting jar builder. Useful as an agile install tool.

gj-scrape - HTML scraping API. Scrapes as a String walker rather than
trying to tidy up into nice XML and doing DOM.

xmlwriter - output XML. Very simple API and I think still valuable. I
know there are alternatives out there hidden away in other APIs
though,
                    so might be that someone knows XStream or XOM or
something is great for this.

Any thoughts?

http://www.osjava.org/payload/
http://www.osjava.org/genjava/multiproject/gj-scrape/apidocs/
http://www.osjava.org/xmlwriter/

Areas to improve in each:

payload - a GUI install window in addition to the command line one. It
should recognize if the icon was double clicked and if so kick off a
gui mode.

gj-scrape - possibly rethink as an xml scraper for dodgy xml [ie:
html]. Various bits could be added; but then they'd make it more
serious. I found it very useful simply because it doesn't try to infer
much about the document.

 xmlwriter - have it auto-check an XSD or DTD on the way out. There's
code in there to do that, but it needs finishing. JARV gave me pain :)

Anyway, I'd like to bring them to Commons if desired.
