Subject Re: [VOTE] Release BSF 2.4.0

Hi Sanka,

*great* (and kudos to you for all your work that has gone into it from 
your side)!

Just noticed that the samples-directory does not contain the version 
that I created. This is my fault as I have been working on the wrong 
samples directory on my machine (I have a local svn for BSF and did not 
realize that I was not updating the Apache svn repository). For that 
reason I would like to make the following changes and check them in and 
request to put them into the distribution (those few nutshell samples 
are the most important enabler for newcomers to BSF):

    * remove "samples/jsp", "samples/jsplike", "samples/multiplication_test"
          o reasoning: these directories contain Windows-dependent
            scripts (platform dependent OLE/ActiveX scripting engines),
            which cannot be run with this release of BSF. (One would
            need to create the COM/OLE-interfaces either with JNI or
            using Eclipse's swt classes for COM/OLE.)
    * add the missing scripts to the remaining sample directories (a few
      ooRexx, Jython/Python and Jacl/Tcl scripts).

Will go ahead to incorporate these changes and check them in right away.

+1 (After reflecting the changes in the "samples/" branch.)
