Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-366) add MultiFormat
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2008 19:38:08 GMT


Matt Benson commented on LANG-366:

:|  Here we are again and again I am forced to disagree with you, Niall.  On your second issue,
regarding consuming all the input, again I defer to the Format API.  parseObject(String, ParsePosition)
is specifically declared to consume only as much of the incoming String as necessary, so forcing
all input to be consumed would defeat the goals of the API at least in part.  This is why
ParsePosition has an updatable index; otherwise returning an Object vs. throwing an Exception
would be sufficient behavior.  On the first issue I don't exactly have a problem except for
the fact that I can't see how it would be compatible with the part of my EMF code in which
it's used (and which dictated the creation of MultiFormat).  We can defer that discussion
until we reach consensus on the EMF issue, but perhaps a TypeKeyedFormat or some such might
be an option.
