Subject [jira] Commented: (CXF-3055) Refining help page for utilities, as well as expanding (adding) switches where necessary
Date Sat, 06 Nov 2010 20:34:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-3055?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12929195#action_12929195

Robert Liguori commented on CXF-3055:
-------------------------------------

Apache CXF 2.3.0 Command Usages Documentation and Implementation Analysis
This attached document identifies that there are currently three separately defined usage
representations for the Apache CXF tools.  Ideally, all resources should be identical, and
the source help (ie. file -h) needs to be accurate.  Also, there is the GNU standard, where
if implemented correctly would encourage improvement/refinements to the options (i.e. -h and
--help vs. -h and -help).  The GNU standard is listed at the end of each command section in
the document to emphasize the importance of using this standard or a similar one in establishing
the usage of commands (at least, in my opinion).

>             Project: CXF
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Tooling
>    Affects Versions: 2.3.0
>            Reporter: Robert Liguori
>            Priority: Minor
>   Original Estimate: 4h

> Consider "JavaToWS.java" for the java2ws utility...
> -V and -verbose are added in this file as valid switches, however, only -verbose is shown
in the java2ws help (java2ws -h).
> Consider adding "-V" to the help page of the java2ws utility.
> Also, consider adding the following (below) to the help and general functionality of
scripts (i.e., wsdl2java, wsdl2js, java2js, java2ws, xsd2wsdl, wsdl2java, wsdl2soap, wsdl2corba,
wsdl2service, wsdlvalidator), WHERE APPLICABLE:
> -h, -help, --help (see reference below)
> -v, -version, --version
> -V, -verbose
> -q, -quiet
> -cp, -classpath
> Thank you for the consideration.  Note: my comment isn't complete, it needs some more
analysis to meet convention.
> Reference: http://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/standards.html#Command_002dLine-Interfaces
> Note: subset of current options/switches for java2ws:
> ...
> -h    Display detailed information for options
> -v    Display the version of the tool.
> -verbose    Verbose mode
> -q    Quiet mode
> ...
> Could be something link this:
> ...
> -h, --help    Display detailed information for options
> -v, --version    Display the version of the tool.
> -V, --verbose    Verbose mode
> -q, --quiet    Quiet mode
> ...
