Subject [jira] Commented: (SANDBOX-236) Eliminate methods in Generator class that simply invoke same-named methods from Algorithms against the calling Generator
Date Wed, 07 May 2008 22:25:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SANDBOX-236?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12595068#action_12595068

Matt Benson commented on SANDBOX-236:
-------------------------------------

It looks like noone feels strongly about this, so my current plan is to remove Algorithms
from the Generator interface wholesale.  Maybe a future enhancement can use RT instrumentation
to adapt Algorithms onto a given Generator.

> I believe that any convenience gained by these methods' presence will be negated by increasing
user confusion as Algorithms may be expanded while Generator is "stuck" as a result of its
being an interface.  It would be more consistent to remove these now rather than incur a "partial,
but decreasing symmetry" relationship between this static utility class and interface as time
goes on.
