Subject [jira] [Commented] (COLLECTIONS-483) Cyclic dependencies among several packages.
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2013 06:28:52 GMT


Brahim Djoudi commented on COLLECTIONS-483:

It's not really a bug to fix (in the releases indicated for instance), just a proposal to
improve the package breakdown.
In other words, it's essentially a preventive processing rather than a curative action.

The OSGi bundle is actually modular since it contains packages exported with version numbers.
However, I quite agree: you could drop all the classes in a single package and all had worked
fine as well ;)

> Many packages have mutual dependency, directly or undirectly.
> These dependencies may be avoided just by moving some classes and interfaces within different
> This refactoring breaks API compatibility but enhances the useability and the maintainability
(hopefully) of the library. In addition, few issues in dynamic environments (like OSGi) less
