Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-1005) Use sourcetypeaction for input plugins
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2008 06:12:44 GMT


David Crossley commented on FOR-1005:

Ross refers to our powerful "SourceTypeAction (content aware pipelines)"
This detects properties of the input sources and responds accordingly.

Two examples are org.apache.forrest.plugin.input.foaf which acts on "document-element namespace"
and org.apache.forrest.plugin.input.simplifiedDocbook which acts on "document-declaration
public-id". There are other methods, and more could be added.

If any Forrest developer would like to get involved with a task, then this would be a great
contribution. A good way to get familiar with the internals of Forrest.

to process a file or not.
> Too many plugins use a fixed url space for this, it is not maintainable.
