Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-3841) Change "samples" folder to "examples"
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2011 01:08:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-3841?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13119115#comment-13119115

Daniel Kulp commented on CXF-3841:
----------------------------------


I'm -1 on this.   We've used samples for over 5 years and there is no compelling reason to
change.   What other projects do should not matter for what we do so that whole argument is
pointless.  I also don't get the whole collected/created thing.   

In anycase, I really don't see the point at all and the main thing it will cause is a lot
of busy work updating wiki pages and documentation and stuff for no real value.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-3841
>             Project: CXF
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.2
>            Reporter: Robert Liguori
>            Priority: Trivial
>
> CXF Projects: Samples vs Examples vs Demos
> Case Study:
> Apache ServiceMix and Apache Camel place their example projects under an "examples" folder.
 Apache ActiveMQ uses an "example" folder (without the s).
> Recommendation:
> Rename CXF's "samples" folder to "examples". Specifically, change "\apache-cxf-2.4.2\samples"
to "\apache-cxf-2.4.2\examples".
> Justification:
> The terms "Samples" and "Examples" are pretty much interchangeable, with the difference
of "samples" being generally thought of as something *collected*, and "examples" being generally
thought of as something *created*.  I believe that CXF example projects fall into the latter
sub-classification.
> * Also, since CXF is in the same family as the other SOA-related tools that use "examples",
this is another reason to align directory names.
> Thanks for the consideration.
> Some other use cases: Eclipse, XMLSpy and Tcl/TK use 'examples'. However, NetBeans and
XMLBeans do use 'samples'.
> * I also recommend that Apache ActiveMQ changes their folder from "example" to "examples",
for the same alignment purposes.
