Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-86) Add FileFinder back into Commons IO

Niall Pemberton commented on IO-86:

I'm happy with the changes you made, except for a couple of minor points wrt to DirectoryWalker:

1) I think the handleDirectoryEnd() method should be within the "if (process)" check - so
that its not executed if handleDirectoryStart() returns false.
2) How about returning the result List from the handleEnd() method? That would make it easy
if someone wanted to process the results further and return a different List instance if they

    protected List handleEnd(List results) {
        // do nothing - overridable by subclass
        return results;

On the issue of whether FileFinder is now needed or not - I agree it adds minimal value -
except as an example DirectoryWalker implementation. I don't mind if you get rid of it or

> I'd like to propose adding a "FileFinder" back into Commons IO. This is a simplified
version of what was recently moved out of Commons IO into the "finder" component currently
in the sandbox.
> I believe this is a simpler, more generic implementation than the finder component and
therefore would be considered suitable for inclusion in Commons IO. Although simpler it could
be used as the basis for achieving the finder component's aims - namely to emulate the unix
find command.
