Subject [jira] Commented: (EXEC-27) Rename EnvironmentUtil to EnvironmentUtils
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2008 10:10:44 GMT


Siegfried Goeschl commented on EXEC-27:

The EnvironmentUtil class is part of the original code drop, all other *Utils I wrote. And
I'm not really willing to break backward compatibility due to cosmetic name change.

Regarding separation of public class and internal representation

+) no one is reading javadoc to understand such a fine-grained separation between public classes
and useful implementation classes
+) to cleanly separate it I personally would create an "impl" package but this is not really
an option

As a side note: I'm not too happy with structure and some implementation decisions but I try
to stick closely to the original ANT code simply because it is mature and known to work. And
retesting the code on the various platforms is a major headache .... :-)

> Utility classes from exec:
> - {{DebugUtils}}
> - {{MapUtils}}
> - {{StringUtils}}
> - {{EnvironmentUtil}}
> Note that {{EnvironmentUtil}} is the only one using singular form of utility. To make
the API consistent, both within exec and compared with other commons libs like collections
and lang, I suggest to rename the class to {{EnvironmentUtils}}.
