Subject [jira] Created: (HIVEMIND-98) Processing Rules docs (and maybe framework) enhanchement request
Date Mon, 07 Mar 2005 00:55:54 GMT
Processing Rules docs (and maybe framework) enhanchement request

         Key: HIVEMIND-98
     Project: HiveMind
        Type: Improvement
  Components: framework, documentation  
    Versions: 1.0    
 Environment: (not relevant)
    Reporter: Giorgio Gallo

I just spent one full day to figure out why my configuration points always ended up empty:
the reason is I missed the red box telling me i had to include the
    <invoke-parent method="addElement"/>

(After smashing my head with a huge hammer for I once again I underestimated the importance
of reading documentation) I realized the red box isn't actually very visible in docs and I
overlooked it because, having a bit of familiarity with digester, I quit reading after the
first few paragraphs. :)


Documentation enhanchement request:

(Since I know I am stupid, but I also think other people are just like me) Could you move
the box to the very top of the file?


Framework enhanchement request (maybe already ok in 1.1 - sorry: didn't check):

Since this <invoke-parent method="addElement"/> is SO important, why not adding a new
type of rule, say: <add-element/>? After all I (as a HM user) really don't want to know
the name of the method called...

Also, couldn't the rule <set-parent .../> be sort of dangerous if called like in:
    <create-object .../>
    <set-parent    .../>

I would end up having a reference to whatever HM puts at the bottom of the stack in an object
of mine...

Thank you in advance - and thank you for this beautiful hivemind thing!
