Subject Re: [ANN] Commons Lang 2.0 released!
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2003 07:23:35 GMT

This looks interesting... Dare I ask how much of this is meant to be  

This looks to be enhancement, there is no more something like a static  
System.getProperties() which I think I remember having seen earlier.  
And System.getProperty() seem to restricted to allowed ones.

However I see the use of the Class.getDeclaredConstructors() or  
Class.getDeclaredFields() at many places. Although this sounds to be a  
good design approach it is sadly not applet-friendly... (ask Sun why, I  
never understood, they say it's to understand the class and possibly  
reverse-engineer or something like that).

And maybe there are other issues.
I shall start proposing patches  when I'll use it in this setting but I  
would look forward to hear if other people use it in a sandboxed way  
(e.g. JNLP no-permissions, or applets).
