Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-86) Add FileFinder back into Commons IO
Date Sun, 23 Jul 2006 04:11:14 GMT

Henri Yandell commented on IO-86:

I like the API - a nice simplification on the Observer pattern stuff I had. I'd rename the
FileCleaner example to something else - we already have a FileCleaner and it's got quite the
different functionality. 

Otherwise - +1 to including it. Either make the commit yourself with the fixed <p>'s
and FIleCleaner bit, or attach again and I'll happily commit. I'm not sure over the protected
methods - are they the right API for the user:

* should the big doDirectory method be private
* should the event methods all be:  handleXxx and not doXxx. 
* should any other event methods exist - start and end of the whole find? 
* should we add the cancel() method that somebody asked for in [finder]. Seems easier with
this implementation.

> 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.
