Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLI-179) Needs "standalone" options that can be used even if required options are not set
Date Tue, 01 May 2012 06:51:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLI-179?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13265687#comment-13265687
] 

Michael Scheper commented on CLI-179:
-------------------------------------

Not sure the group solution is a real solution. When I try it, it makes the {{HelpFormatter}}
output strange, and it adds a level of complexity to retrieving the option. +1 on [~jroyer]'s
{{isStandalone(boolean)}} suggestion.

> it is currently impossible to have options like "help" or "version" if we also have some
required options. The parsing results in an error "Missing parameters".
> But for an "help" or "version" option, it would be usefull to display the wanted information,
even if required options are not set.
