Subject Renaming DefinitionsFactory or DefinitionsFactory?
Date Fri, 02 Jan 2004 12:25:16 GMT

Hi all, I was recently poking around in the source and API docs for
some of the Tiles classes, and noticed there is an interface
org.apache.struts.tiles.DefinitionsFactory, and a concrete class
org.apache.struts.tiles.xmlDefinition.DefinitionsFactory.  Now, this
isn't a problem in any objective sense, and granted, they
are in different packages...

But, to a developer new to the Tiles source, it makes things just a tad
bit confusing.  Actually, a lot of the naming conventions in Tiles
are confusing to me, and maybe I'll throw some other suggestions
out later.. but for now, I wonder if there's any possibility of  renaming
one of the DefinitionsFactory types?

I'm afraid I'm not familiar enough with the code (yet) to have a full
understanding of what all the ramifications of this would be, and maybe
it's a dumb idea... but I thought I'd mention it and see what the
experienced Struts / Tiles folks had to say.
