Subject Re: adding features to Status servlet

hehe, well if it was just a simple JNI calling sysinfo, I would agree
it would have limited lifespan. But considering how slow some people
move, it would last atleast 3-4 years, which is still useful in my

given that mladen is working on apr-java, I would say it is more
useful and would have a significantly longer lifespan. everything has
a life span, but if it is useful, than i feel it's worth while. plus
it's my own time, so not like anyone else is going to care if it only
lasts for 2-4 years. I much rather have the option of using it with
jdk1.4 and across all VM's than simply relying on Sun's jdk5.
