Subject RE: Contribution of RMI framework
Date Fri, 14 Apr 2006 16:17:35 GMT
Hi, Mikhail,

Regretfully, the method-to-method comparison would hardly be effective
with RMI, as it's a highly integrated component.

80% of implementation is hidden in non-public API, and some components
(e. g. RMIC) have no public API at all. So it's hard to plug just one
public method from one implementation to another without modifying
non-public code - and non-public code could have (and probably does
have) very different structure in different implementations.

What we really can do is try to run both these implementations and
compare them for conformance to the specification, compatibility with
reference implementation, maybe stability, performance, visual code
quality etc. I'm now planning to do some of these, so we'd get some
results pretty soon.

I think we need compare contributions method by method to assemble
the best classlib
