Subject Re: [lang] Collections -> Lang
Date Thu, 07 Apr 2011 15:38:14 GMT
Looks fun. I've not used Google Collections much; but equally I don't
use Commons Collections much either :)

Generally I've seen Guava as akin to Joda Time; it's a better JDK
[obviously for a value of better; but I've liked a lot of what I've
seen]. Lang is generally just trying to put simple patches on top of
the JDK. But it's a very fair point and exactly the reason why I don't
want to try and pull in complex data structures - there are other
libraries out there focused on them.

For now I'll be ignoring the question to get 3.0 done, then look at
what in Collections needs to hop on the small Lang lifeboat.
