Oliver Zeigermann commented on TRANSACTION-9:
---------------------------------------------

Peter, that's pretty cool! Jörg seems to plan some more radical changes/extensions pointing
to the same direction. We currently discuss this on the commons dev list. Please join us.
Anyway, if you would want to donate your work to the transactions package, please add some
code / patch to this issue.

Thanks 

Oliver

> Hi,
> As stated in the doc the FileResourceManager is:
> "A resource manager for streamable objects stored in a file system"
> I agree, that this is a resource manager, but it could be easily extended, to 
> support a full file management system. It will be very helpful to have 
> additional methods like renameResource(), getResourceSize(), getResourceTime(), 
> setResourceTime() etc. This are common file operations, which should be managed 
> by the FileResourceManager.
> Further it will be very helpful to have (real) support for resource collections 
> (folders). It will be necessary to distinguish between single resources (files) 
> and collections (folders). 
> Together, this features will enable a transactional access to any file based 
> resources - for instance a document repository.
> Are there plans for such extensions and if not, will they actually fit in the 
> goals of the transaction library?
> If not, please open the underlying structure, like the inner class 
> TransactionContext, in order to add extensions the file management. For 
> instance, it will be good to have a separate factory method, which creates the 
> context.
> If you are interested in this proposal, I am ready to contribute to this 
> project. I consider myself as an experienced java developer and I will be glad 
> to help you. 
> Best regards
> Peter Fassev
