Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 500256
Pre-Review Request: jakarta-commons-configuration - Commons Configuration Package
Last modified: 2009-08-20 15:51:33 EDT
Package needed for Maven 2.0.8
SRPM URL: http://people.fedoraproject.org/~fnasser/jakarta-commons-configuration-1.4-4.jpp6.src.rpm
Configuration is a project to provide a generic Configuration
interface and allow the source of the values to vary. It
provides easy typed access to single, as well as lists of
configuration values based on a 'key'.
Right now you can load properties from a simple properties
file, a properties file in a jar, an XML file, JNDI settings,
as well as use a mix different sources using a
ConfigurationFactory and CompositeConfiguration.
Custom configuration objects are very easy to create now
by just subclassing AbstractConfiguration. This works
similar to how AbstractList works.
- the URL is no longer valid because we're a few versions behind. Here's one that works:
- I verified the md5sums all match (upstream .md5, one I downloaded, in-SRPM .tar.gz)
- I looked through a random sampling of 5 or so source files and they all say ASL
2.0 as does LICENSE.txt. Therefore, the License field should reflect this.
- there some whitespace and other minor-looking differences between the .pom file as included in the SRPM and what I can get from upstream
Otherwise, things look okay for pre-review.
Thanks for the pre-review!
The whitespace differences still exist in the .pom file but I think that's probably fine for pre-review. md5sums match.
