Subject Remove GeronimoExecutor?
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2006 23:54:41 GMT
Can we remove the interface GeronimoExecutor from Geronimo or at the  
very least have no services use it?  For those of you whom are not  
aware of this interface, it adds a getName and getObjectName  
interface to an Executor.  Here is the code:

public interface GeronimoExecutor extends Executor,  
org.apache.geronimo.system.threads.ThreadPool {
      * Gets a human-readable name identifying this object.
     String getName();

      * Gets the unique name of this object.  The object name must  
comply with
      * the ObjectName specification in the JMX specification.
      * @return the unique name of this object within the server
     String getObjectName();

I searched the code base and there isn't a single use of the getName  
and getObjectName methods.  The problem is the Work manager needs one  
of these in the constructor, but it only uses the execute method  
declared on in the Executor and ThreadPool interfaces.  This means  
that if you want to use the work manager you must take both the  
geronimo-core and geronimo-system jars to get the GeronimoExecutor  
and ThreadPool interfaces respectively.

So can we please please please remove this interface and just use  

I'd like to do this in both 1.2 and 1.1.1.
