Subject Re: Remove dependency for concurrent.jar
Date Thu, 27 Aug 2009 15:02:47 GMT
Well i don't know the codebase so Aaron is your better reference there
BUT...

Since the large majority of Doug's concurrent library got ported as is into
the JDK, Id start by simply taking his library out of your build path in
eclipse.  Then follow the errors and everywhere it can't find a reference to
a concurrent utility, use's Eclipse's help to add the proper import.

Id imagine it cant be more then a day or two of very mechanical work...

Alternately, if your a perl type hacker you could try writing a script that
would look for the string that is doug's package name in the file and
repalce it with the JDK package.
