That would be great.  I will continue to develop the
application to become a superset of the existing demo
including adding applet functionality.

Adding a link for people to find the tool would be
great too.

Thanks

John.

Yep.

You mean the highlighted group?  Yes, that's useful for long expressions.

Yes, we can link to it.  We also ought to put together a page of other
software that that uses jakarta-oro (e.g., jpython) because there's a lot
of it out there.  My proposal regarding your tool is that you should
continue to develop it and that eventually, if you're still willing, it
could be made part of jakarta-oro.  The theory I'm working under here is
that the demo probably won't be fleshed out further into a feature-rich
interactive testing tool any time soon because there are more pressing
items to work on.  So if you continue working on your tool, when it becomes
more useful than the demo, if you're willing, we would roll it into the
jakarta-oro source tree as part of a either a utilities tree or the
forthcoming unit test tree.  At that point I'd hope that it at least
provided a superset of the functionality of the existing demo and that
it come in two flavors: an application and an applet (solely for the
purpose of putting it on the project web page).
