Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-1005) API surface of caching module can be reduced
Date Tue, 12 Oct 2010 13:10:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1005?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12920181#action_12920181

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1005:


I am feeling really bad about having to lump all classes into one package. 

What is your feeling about stability of the API at this point? How likely is it that you may
want to make sweeping changes to the classes and interfaces that currently reside in o.a.h.client.cache?
If you anticipate major changes , I'll apply the patch and start working on the first BETA
release. However, If you feel that a few more months should be enough to finalize the API,
we could probably delay the BETA phase a little and do one more ALPHA meanwhile.

What do you think?

> While the caching module can currently be considered functional and useful for folks
as-is, there are several near-term enhancements planned that could change the exposed binary
API of the caching module (although it is not yet clear whether they would or not). In an
effort to allow the 4.1 GA release to go forward while hedging bets against future development,
we should consider drastically reducing the exposed binary API of the caching module, and
not exposing extension points until someone explicitly asks for them.
