Subject [jira] [Commented] (CHAIN-55) split the huge project in submodules
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2011 08:56:09 GMT


Simone Tripodi commented on CHAIN-55:

I tend to agree, those parts have too much in common that extracting the core, then including
it in each other, would be an overkill. Moreover, as you wrote in the ML, probably there are
no users on upgrading the web part except Struts1.X community - and it is known Struts1.X
is no more active.
As you wrote in the ML: it's maybe time to speak about totally dropping the web module in
v2.0? what someone else thinks about it? Keeping it just because 'it exists' shouldn't be
enough to justify its existence if no users community is interested anymore...

> As discussed in the [dev ML|], there is a
general agreement between people interested on chain, on splitting the huge component in small
submodules, in order to have a lightweight, dependencies-less (unless the logging library,
if required) and self-contained core module, and users interested on core APIs only don't
need to bring unused code in their applications. SUggested modules are:
>  * core APIs;
>  * XML configuration APIs (depends from Digester);
>  * servlet (depends from Servlet APIs);
>  * portlet (depends from Portlet APIs);
>  * faces (depends from Faces APIs).
