Subject [jira] Commented: (CXF-2044) Aegis Custom Type Mapping
Date Fri, 20 Feb 2009 23:23:04 GMT


Benson Margulies commented on CXF-2044:


CXF, broadly, has always had an XML Schema dependency. It's not going away. In fact, in general,
we're doing just the opposite. Dan and I got ourselves voted in as Xml Schema committers just
so that we could more confidently depend on it. Using a DOM API for all the schema things
CXF has to do would be really nasty from a performance and maintenance standpoint.

The change to Aegis to have the Type system work directly with Xml Schema is consistent with
the rest of the system -- if perhaps not very polite on the 2.1.x branch.

I think you might be one of about 3 people who ever bothered to invest in custom type objects.
Or, at least, who have turned up in the CXF community. CXF 2.0.x left a number of Aegis features
broken from the original port. I changed all sorts of things in 2.1. 

Porting this code back to 2.1 has the potential to annoy anyone, like you, who adapted custom
type code to the 2.1 changes. 

Your welcome to move this thread to the dev list. I suspect that the net-net will be this;
there's no one in the community with the time and inclination to fix your original problem
inside the 2.1 JDOM paradigm.

If you and others really would rather have JDOM and bugs than Xml Schema and less bugs in
the 2.1.x branch, then we'd have to consider unwinding my (really laborious) backport.
