Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRMINA-823) Add IoBuffer.putUnsigned* methods to balance the getUnsigned* methods for completeness
Date Tue, 15 Mar 2011 06:29:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRMINA-823?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13006810#comment-13006810

Francis ANDRE commented on DIRMINA-823:

For the same reason that Mina provides the getUnsignedShort(), getUnsignedMiddleInt() and
getUnsignedInt(): lisibility and share of the code...

Otherwise, why Mina provides putInt(), putMiddleInt(), putShort() if not for a better lisibility
and clean code??? All thoses methods can be expressed by a combination of one or more put(byte
b) but the resulting code is quite a bit clumsy. So, the same reasons should apply: lisibility,
evidence of the semantic, share of the code, and clean resulting code.

>             Project: MINA
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.2
>         Environment: WXP SP3, Sun SDK 1.5
>            Reporter: Francis ANDRE
>            Priority: Trivial
> While unsigned integers types are quite meaningful in  networking protocols,  Java does
not provide unsigned integer primitive types. The IoBuffer.getUnsigned* methods are filling
the gap between the need of  unsigned integers and the real Java programs.
> But IoBuffer does not provide the correlative IoBuffer.putUnsigned* methods. Thus for
completeness, this issue proposes to add those IoBuffer.putUnsigned* methods.
