Subject Re: [chain2] configuration façade APIs
Date Fri, 27 Jul 2012 09:08:09 GMT
Hi all [chain2] people,

looks like what we have in /trunk is good already to cut a first RC -
anyway I would like to spur all involved people to be more "visionary"
and do more work now :P

Just to put more food for thoughts, for the configuration side: I
would like to invite you on evaluating the Jackson[1] library wich is
natively JSON and now supports data binding for more formats[2], XML,
YAML and Smile included!
Hopefully, with Jackson we could get rif of the Digester and have a
universal underlying parser wich supports more formats... how does it
sound? Maybe we won't need multiple config submodules anymore!

About licensing, Jackson is available under ALv2.

This is something that worths investigate - WDYT?

all the best, have a nice day!
-Simo
