Subject On the extensibility of the core
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2008 14:38:22 GMT
I was wondering why there seems to be a problem with allowing the core to be extended in some
In my particular case, I need the database data store, and the current implementation doen't
fit my needs. So I wanted to change some details of it. My plan was to extend DbDataStore
and make 
my changes there. But then I find out there are some utility methods/classes that don't have
visibility required to be used in derived clases. For example, DbDataStore.moveToTempFile()
private and TempFileInputStream's constructor is package-private.
So my question is: do we wan't people not being able to extend Jackrabbit in this way?
