Subject Re: Conversion utility class
Date Sun, 05 Feb 2012 15:42:09 GMT
This seems to fit well with the functionality of my utility class.

Please let me know what do you think about the documentation issue. Anyone
has an idea to generate javadoc from a scala code ?

Also, what do you use to build the library ? does it handle mixed language
projects ? I am using JIdea and I heard it can handle such project but I
don't know if netbeans or eclipse can...

Have you seen Commons Convert?
