Subject Re: dnsjava block
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2001 22:46:12 GMT

Simply I am just talking about moving the dns wrapper to cornerstone 
from james.  I'm keen for it not to fork... i.e. the James team see the 
move, and use it from cornerstone from then on.  That's what the vote is 
about - block to move or not to move from james CVS.

As a second issue a JNDI dns lookup mechanism was seen to be more 
desirable in the long run to the James team.  My suggestion was, if that 
was to happen, for it to honour the "Service" interface that the 
original dnsjava block did.
