Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-359) Add an XMLUtils class
Date Sun, 21 Oct 2007 04:04:50 GMT


Henri Yandell commented on LANG-359:

It's the usual argument.

A: Here's a class
B: It doesn't belong in Lang
A: It's too small to be its own component
B: Go put it in X
A: It doesn't fit in X (for example, XML Commons does not have somewhere for this, and is
a project being removed).
B: Not in Lang.

Too right that Lang shouldn't be a catch all for everything else, but we also need to let
th conversation continue on what ideas people have.

Not in Lang has positives - it can be JDK 1.6+ etc :) So, what methods were you thinking of

> Please add an XMLUtils class that deals with most common functions required in working
with XML. Working directly with the w3 DOM is a PITA, and almost every project that needs
XML, implements it's own utility classes, hence much repeating and code duplication.
> IMHO this (commons-lang) is the best place for such an utility cause it would be similar
to StringUtils (used so much that everybody wishes it were part of the JDK :) )
