Subject Re: Do you see Abdera2 posts from Thomas Koch on the dev list?

Hello Thomas,

Unfortunately, for reasons I don't quite understand just yet, I have
not been receiving your notes via the abdera-dev list. Let me try to
answer your questions...

1. Yes, patches for any part of this would be fantastic,
2. The WrappedEntryObject idea sounds just fine. I'll take a look at
the specific patch on monday.
3. Patches for code style updates are fine as well.
4. Ant: I'm +0 on switching to git, either way is just fine for me.
5. Good catch on the abdera-example rename. Will fix that on Monday
when I get a chance to dig into the code.
6. The nice thing about the Constants class is that it keeps all those
pesky, commonly used QName objects together and instantiates them all
at once. those are used extensively throughout the codebase so before
eliminating it, we need to see a counter-proposal that does not
increase complexity for developers.
7. Renaming the Generator to Builder is fine, but I think the use of
Supplier is fine as is. Introducing a new Builder interface where the
only real difference is the name of the method to get the thing that
is built seems pointless to me.
8. Regarding the point on inheritance... you're right. The server-side
code suffers from this the most. I've been wanting to see a complete
overhaul of the server side stuff for a while but just did not have
the bandwidth to do the complete rework that I had wanted. Any
simplifications to this that you think can be made would be fantastic.

Hopefully that addresses all the concerns and questions. I'm going to
be able to return to abdera2 todo items on Monday to work on test
cases, etc and will take a look at any submitted patches.

Thanks for jumping in on this Thomas, it's very helpful to have
someone so engaged.

- James
