Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-416) Import MethodUtils and ConstructorUtils from BeanUtils
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2008 18:04:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-416?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12579539#action_12579539

Matt Benson commented on LANG-416:
----------------------------------

Seems to be a battle of principles here.  :)  A large part of Lang's codebase is utility classes
filled with static methods.  In principle, what you suggest is a good thing, but it's not
necessarily consistent with the API feel to which Lang users should be accustomed.  Once again,
perhaps you'd like to make concrete suggestions once we have something we can all look at.

> Mentioned on the mailing list...  After we release 2.4 I'd like to:
> - import ConstructorUtils
> - make CU.getMatchingAccessibleConstructor() public
> - import MethodUtils
> - factor best-match calculation code out of MethodUtils into abstract superclass MemberUtils,
make ConstructorUtils extend MemberUtils and use the same code (be on the lookout for ways
to improve best-match calcs; my original description was based on javadoc that said the first
matching method encountered was used, but this comment seems to have been outdated). 
> - merge any other duplicate (or near-duplicate) code from CU/MethodU into MemberU and
remove anything else that doesn't make sense in the context of Lang.
