Subject [net] +=DNS ...?
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 23:03:47 GMT
over in james, we have some useful DNS client code. sufficiently useful
for the qpid to enquire about the possibility of sharing it: i think it should probably
be in scope for commons-net, though DNS is not (at the moment) a
supported protocol.

there are some wrinkles (aren't there always?) in that the code in
question has been rewritten for 3.x to use a separate DNS service to
avoid know limitations of the java DNS client implementation. it uses (unfortunately this isn't very
actively maintained). 

but the 2.x version is solid enough and is very suitable for a

i'd be willing to help out (if that'd be helpful) and possible a few
other committers from james and qpid may be willing to help maintain
this code as well.
