Subject [jira] Commented: (DIGESTER-135) Digester rules defined through Java5 Annotatations
Date Wed, 21 Oct 2009 13:49:59 GMT


James Carman commented on DIGESTER-135:

I'm not so sure about this approach.  One thing that jumped out at me was the @SetNext annotation.
 When you're building up your digester by hand, you have some context of where you are when
you set up your rules.  With that @SetNext, how do you know where you are?   How do you know
your context?  It would be easy for the classes to get out of synch.  I think we'd be better
off creating a rules builder API that reads more like English.
