Subject Re: Uniquely Identifying a LB Cartridge
Date Fri, 17 Jan 2014 03:19:35 GMT

Problem I see here is, if we follow the same structure, we have to keep
adding new elements to the configuration, which would make it complex to
configure. So, IMO we should keep using properties (since these are
optional elements) leveraging the extensibility of the Cartridge definition
file and correctly document them all.

Well, the logic should be corrected (if it's not already there) to assume
the value of this property as false by default. So, if you didn't specify
it explicitly, its value still be false.
