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:
http://markmail.org/thread/u4n4q5f2q7wyq2vf. 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
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dnsjava/ (unfortunately this isn't very
actively maintained). 

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

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.

opinions?

- robert
