Subject Re: v0.4-incubating adding Seam Config (xml config)
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2012 09:20:50 GMT
+1 I agree with Pete on this but we should pay attention to Candi compatibility. Seam config
crashes with Caucho Candi which already has its own xml config solution. Having introduced
it in JBoss Solder made Seam 3 incompatible with Resin.

I agree that core is a good place for xml config as long as we check that it won't make Deltaspike
unusable with Resin.

it's quite uncontroversial. The "API" of the config is actually the XML dialect, which has
received a lot of attention in the past (designed for CDI 1.0, so fully reviewed by the EG).

dependencies are basically zero (CDI API and SAX, which is in the JDK), and I think if it
goes in it's own package, it shouldn't cause contention on class files. Personally, I think
this is a core concern, and as it doesn't introduce dependencies can go easily into the core.
