Subject Re: enhancement for PropertyFile, have a patch
Date Sat, 03 Sep 2005 16:15:43 GMT
I agree with your analysis. Your enhanced PropertyFile task doesn't
fit the filterchain framework, although as Antoine rightly writes,
many other things do fit it and should be implemented or retrofitted
into that framework.

Regarding your submission per se, it really depends on how you coded
it. What you did was more or less proposed before, but it wasn't clear
at the time whether the code was original or simply modified code of
the JDK Property class from SUN, and thus it didn't go anywhere. Of
course, taking/hacking SUN's code is a big no-no. If yours is indeed
original, then by all means post it. Easiest is to submit patches in
cvs diff -u format attached to a BugZilla report. If it's brand new
code as opposed to modification of existing code (already under the
Apache license), you'll have to send a Software Grant form to the ASF
as well. Stefan knows the details better than me ;-)

I hope this helps. --DD
