Subject: Re: [sca-j] ISSUE-28: Package Name Changes

I'm not very happy with the decision that Mary sent out.  The package prefix she is suggesting seems very cumbersome and contrary to normal Java naming conventions.  We'll all have to get used to saying "org dot oasis underscore open dot sca dot ComponentContext" (etc.).

It's the cumbersome and unconventional new package name prefix that is the main issue from my perspective.  The change from osoa could be argued either way, depending on how much change we make to the details of the APIs.

[sca-j] ISSUE-28: Package Name Changes

[sca-j] NEW ISSUE: Package Name Changes

RAISER: Sanjay Patil
TARGET: Java Common Annotations and APIs Specification


The Java Common Annotations and APIs Specification uses the 'org.osoa.sca' package name for the API and 'org.osoa.sca.annotations' package name for the annotations.
There exist a good number of commercial and open source software implementations of SCA that use the current package names. It will be painful for these implementations to maintain backward compatibility if the package names in the final version of the specifications are going to be  different from the current package names.

It is not clear whether the OASIS SCA-J TC would bless use of the current package names in the final versions of the specifications or not.

Continue to use the current package names (org.osoa.sca, org.osoa.sca.annotations) in the final specifications.
