Subject [jira] [Created] (CONFIGURATION-598) There are 2 different ConfigurationBuilder interfaces
Date Fri, 10 Apr 2015 12:39:13 GMT
Bjarne Boström created CONFIGURATION-598:

             Summary: There are 2 different ConfigurationBuilder interfaces
                 Key: CONFIGURATION-598
             Project: Commons Configuration
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.0-alpha1
            Reporter: Bjarne Boström
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.0

(This is my first time entering a bug here; at least searching with ConfigurationBuilder here
did not bring any relevant issues so I wanted to post this)

There are 2 different ConfigurationBuilder interfaces: 
one is {{org.apache.commons.configuration2.ConfigurationBuilder}} and other is

The base package has 
Configuration 	getConfiguration()

while the builder package has 
T 	getConfiguration()
and the (<T extends Configuration> as generic parameter in the interface)

I assume this is a bug, since nothing implements the base package one and all ConfigurationBuilder
implementations implement the one in the builder subpackage. It is at least confusing in case
the base package one is intended just for clients to implement. Also documentation points
to the builder package one.
