Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-821) Support OS X versions in SystemUtils
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2014 10:45:13 GMT


James Sawle commented on LANG-821:

Whilst adding the Mac OS X versions would be relatively trivial; I wonder if a more longer
term solution would be worthwhile.

>From personal experience, it has been useful to have an enum of OS systems, versions,
families and architectures to help set up various parts of applications (as we all know, the
JVM can't abstract everything). Building this into the library could therefore be useful for
other people building applications that rely on OS level resources.

Whilst the current methods would not be as efficient, if they were to rely on the enums; new
more powerful methods, such as is the system between these two OS versions, could be provided
and allow for a more generic set of methods.

Would be interested in what people think, and I apologise if that didn't make much sense.
