Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-366) add MultiFormat
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2008 04:41:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-366?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12565264#action_12565264

Niall Pemberton commented on LANG-366:
--------------------------------------

Something I missed earlier was the fact that MultiFormat is being used as a core part of EMF
- I saw it originally as just another format implementation for users. Since date and number
are the most commonly used, then the fact that it doesn't work is still an issue. Even if
my proposal is dismissed (I actually think that having something that works that doesn't fully
adhere strictly to the API is preferable than the reverse) then providing a broken implementation
is not a good idea. I agree we need to see the outcome of EMF - but if this remains in its
current state and still required by EMF then perhaps it shouldn't be part of the public API

> this started as a part of LANG-362.  That PR depends on this one.
