Subject Re: [classlib] rename "jcl" to "harmony"?
Date Tue, 23 Jan 2007 09:22:41 GMT
Hi, Jimmy:
    Enabling id caching and avoiding calling reflection each time is
able to improve our performance, which will become one of the focuses
for our customers.
    Besides, "Harmony" or "hy" are both good substitutes for"jcl".
    And I am willing to work with you on the issue.

Good luck!
