Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-1012) Reduce code duplication in "RandomDataGenerator"
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2013 01:03:05 GMT


Phil Steitz commented on MATH-1012:

I like the idea here.  This is why we defined RandomGenerator in the first place, but this
code predates it.  An alternative to RandomUtils might be to follow the pattern of JDKRandomGenertor
- explicitly subclass SecureRandom and implement only the needed methods.  I guess you then
still have the factory problem to deal with then, so could be you end up having to wrap in
any case.  So I am OK with the RandomUtils setup, but we should call it something else - e.g.
RandomGeneratorFactory or Random2RandomGenerator.

> Some duplication exists in "o.a.c.m.random.RandomDataGenerator".
> That partly arises from having a method that requires a "o.a.c.m.random.RandomGenerator"
parameter vs a similar method but with a "" parameter.
