Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Commons CLI 1.3 based on RC1
Date Sun, 03 May 2015 17:21:13 GMT
The new class DefaultParser does not use generics to define the options
List, that is suspicious. Looking closer, the list can hold a mix of
OptionGroup and String instances. Really? Looking at Options I see the list
defined as List<Object>. This avoids compiler warnings but is nasty. This
is probably what we have inherited from this very old code base. We should
at least perpetuate this to DefaultParser's List as a List<Object>.

I switched a couple of years ago to using annotation based CLI processing
with JCommander. I'd like to come back to Commons for CLI, but not I do not
see that happening until a very different CLI2 emerges.

This is not the thread for discussing a CLI2 of course... ;-)
