Subject Re: Namespaces in ant ( was Re: Ant 2 et al.)
Date Wed, 10 Jul 2002 05:11:48 GMT
Using namespace URI's as a resource locator is bad form.  

There needs to be some indirection from the namespace URI to the 
location of the resource.  Ant could check a local catalog to match a 
namespace URI's with locally available jar and if that fails, could ask 
a directory service to provide an appropriate locator.  If it was 
successfully downloaded, then it could be added to the local catalog. 
 The local catalog would need some freshness dating to know to check the 
directory service to see if there was an updated .jar for the namespace.
