> Documentation of FileSystemOptions should be more helpful
> ---------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: VFS-518
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons VFS
>          Issue Type: Wish
>            Reporter: Roland Illig
>              Labels: documentation
> The Javadoc of {{FileSystemOptions}} currently says:
> {quote}
> Container for FileSystemOptions.
> You have to use *FileSystemConfigBuilder.getInstance() to fill this container
> {quote}
> The first sentence contains no helpful information at all. It should explain that any
file system can be configured and illustrate a typical usage using a small code example.
> I _think_ the documentation should look like this:
> {quote}
> File systems can be configured individually using these options.
> To configure a file system, you set certain properties in a {{FileSystemOptions}} object.
Most filesystems provide a {{FileSystemConfigBuilder}} that knows the specific options of
the file system.
> To use the options, they have to be passed to the {{FileSystemManager.resolveFile()}}
method. From there, the options apply to all files that are resolved relative to that file.
> {quote}
> These few sentences would have helped me a lot in understanding.
