Subject [jira] Commented: (EXEC-27) Rename EnvironmentUtil to EnvironmentUtils
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2008 10:20:46 GMT


Benjamin Bentmann commented on EXEC-27:

bq. nd I'm not really willing to break backward compatibility 
Backward compat with what? The [project status|] says "The
code is unreleased."

bq. I'm not too happy with structure [...] but I try to stick closely to the original ANT
code simply because it is mature and known to work.
I don't see how refactoring, i.e. renaming/moving classes, can affect the stability. What
better chance to clean up the API is there than before a library's first release? Anyway,
it's your baby...

> Utility classes from exec:
> - {{DebugUtils}}
> - {{MapUtils}}
> - {{StringUtils}}
> - {{EnvironmentUtil}}
> Note that {{EnvironmentUtil}} is the only one using singular form of utility. To make
the API consistent, both within exec and compared with other commons libs like collections
and lang, I suggest to rename the class to {{EnvironmentUtils}}.
