Subject Re: Apache Commons & ApacheCon Europe 2014 ... [VFS]
Date Thu, 17 Apr 2014 21:38:10 GMT
Hello,

there are some bits and pieces here in the archive and the wiki. But my
idea why I brought up the topic of VFS-future birds of feather was
actually to present the current state (whats in VFS whats in Java) and
then discuss what can be done (and that hopefully sparks some
enthusiams and finds volunteers :)

I think right now nobody is volunteering/planning to do anything. And
the next step for VFS is certainly a release refresh of the current
trunk.

But theoretically both is possible: consume FileSystems as a provider
or implement an adapter which makes a VFS filesystem(manager) to
provide the FileSystem SPI.

Gruss
Bernd
