Subject Competing J2EE Connector implementation architectures
Date Tue, 14 Oct 2003 18:52:25 GMT
Gianny Damour and I have developed alternate partial implementations of 
the JCA ConnectionManager.  We haven't been able to convince each other 
of the merits of our own approach, so I think we need some broader 
community review and input.  We also need an easier way to further 
develop our ideas in public.

What I'd like to do is make 2 branches and check one proposal into 
each.  I'd like some advice on what to call the branches.  Here are a 
couple of ideas:

1. Since Gianny's implementation calls most everything a Partition and 
mine calls most everything an Interceptor,




2.  Use our initials...




I'm also not sure if it's necessary to be politically correct and call 
it J2EECA rather than the usual and inaccurate JCA (== Java 
Cryptography Architecture).

If there aren't any objections or better suggestions for names I'll use 
proposal (1).  After checking in the code I'll explain more why I like 
my proposal better.
