Subject Re: [ApacheDS] Rename project 'server-config' to 'apacheds-server-config' + Move 'ConfigBuilder' class into a separate project
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2010 18:10:25 GMT

I renamed the 'server-config' project to 'apacheds-server-config'.

The 'ConfigBuilder' class has been extracted into a separate new 'apacheds-server-config-builder'
project to reduce the number of dependencies on the 'apacheds-server-config' project.

I agree with Alex, the 'ConfigBuilder' naming is a bit confusing... Same thing for the 'apacheds-server-config-builder'
Got any better names ?

Emmanuel proposed 'InstancesBuilder' for the class ('apacheds-server-instances-builder' for
the project).
