Subject Re: [classlib][beans]Non-bug difference in java.beans.Statement/Expression(HARMONY-4392)
Date Tue, 10 Jul 2007 14:32:59 GMT
Hi guys,

FYI here is a link to the 1 year old thread about the same issue:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.java.harmony.devel/11328

However, it ended with nothing. As for me - I support your idea that
we should take the most specific method / constructor.

With Best Regards,
