Subject RE: [commons-lang] elegant way to get version information from jar-filename
Date Fri, 22 Jun 2007 14:04:20 GMT
Hi Jörg,

Many thanks for your answer! 

There should not basic support for this in c-l, but with the StringUtils/Charset and so on,
I found it very complicated to achieve such problem ;-) ... with a regular expression it is
easy ... so lets stop the discussion here ( I have currently a dependency to c-l and don't
want to have another to regexp libs).

Why should there be support in c-l? This is a pure Maven convention. Look into the manifest.
At least Maven-generated jars have proper values and your chance to get proper info from other
jars increases also.
