Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-3841) Change "samples" folder to "examples"
Date Sun, 02 Oct 2011 21:01:35 GMT
Change "samples" folder to "examples"

                 Key: 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).

Rename CXF's "samples" folder to "examples". Specifically, change "\apache-cxf-2.4.2\samples"
to "\apache-cxf-2.4.2\examples".

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

* 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".
