----------------------------------

             Summary: A catalog of reusable, composable, injectable, interface-compliant,
immutable  Predicates  based on commons.lang3 utilities
                 Key: FUNCTOR-30
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FUNCTOR-30
             Project: Commons Functor
          Issue Type: Wish
    Affects Versions: 1.0
            Reporter: Eitan Raviv
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.0


The Predicate framework does not propose meaningful basic implementations for queries that
have been deemed common enough by commons.lang3 to merit numerous utility methods (actually
functions). This leaves developers with the work-intensive, error-prone, low-level task of
recreating objectified variants of these utilities whenever they wish to pass such queries
around in code. Moreover, the lack of these implementations encourages developers to use static
code, which proliferates as a convention into their application code and may encourage the
opposite of 'clean code' (and I have seen a truck-load of that). I would like to see the ASF
set an example and provide a working set of basic components for developers OOTB.

I am submitting an initial draft patch for a review of my basic idea. If I receive an approval,
I will create a complete patch.
