Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1761) Change geronimo-util module to geronimo-crypto, give credit where credit is due
Date Thu, 23 Mar 2006 04:16:15 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-1761?page=comments#action_12371512 ] 

John Sisson commented on GERONIMO-1761:
---------------------------------------

I agree we should be giving credit.  AFAIK, the standard way is to use the NOTICE.txt file.

The geronimo-util module doesn't contain any crypto implementations, it is just an abstraction
layer for crypto implementations.  I don't think crypto is a good name for it considering
the other stuff it contains such as:

* An encoders package (e.g. Base64) that are used by the remoteDeployUtil and the KeyStoreGBean.

* An ASN.1 package that is used by the KeyStoreGBean and AFAIK, OpenEJB uses some classes
in some corba support (X509 names).

> The util module holds a bunch of crypto-related stuff.  Speculation is that it's the
non-encumbered code from bouncycastle.  It should be in a more accurately named module and
package, since it's not just generic "util" code.  It would also be nice to put a note in
every file header saying where it's from, or at least in NOTICE.txt perhaps.  There may be
improvements we want to track?
