Subject RE: Directory Copy -- IO
Date Wed, 05 Jan 2005 07:26:11 GMT
Hello all,

I'm not familiar with the bugzilla use and practices. I was wondering how is
a patch, for example Bug 32944 referred below, validated as a good patch,
the new methods accepted by the community and integrated into the library.

As a matter of fact, I think methods such as copyDirectory(...) in FileUtils
should provide a Boolean parameter to make the copy recursive or not. I
think it is common need.
Another Boolean parameter could be provided to specify if empty directories
should be copied as well or not.

What do you people think about it?

Regards,

Seb'

Oops -- Bug 32944 seems to cover this issue.
