Common utils was created/born as a project in January 2012 when Marius and Vegard found out that we way too often wrote the same code over and over again in many different projects. To be a bit more efficient we started to create a small library that had all this functionality built in. This has proven to be a great idea, and we're using this library many places right now.
New to version 2 will be the removal of all refering jars. We will provide all access (where possible) ourselves. This is to minimalize the possibility of jar-collide when this jar is beeing used in a e.g project.
If you like it, why not just fork the ever on-going "project", and submit your own additions?
Enjoy it, we do!
##So what utilities does this include?
We have functionality for the following elements in this project:
- Database connection tools
- File handling
- Simple image handling
We will try to update this README as we progress. You can also visit our old google code page (note: this is a dead project-page, please do not check out the code from that location. Thanks).
##Majors to be done
We are working with TDD for this project at the moment, but it is far from finalized. Updates will arrive every now and then!
- IOUtils -- COMING SOON!
- Removing all of the commons-utils delivered by the Apache Commons-project. This is due to unwanted dependencies in the pom.xml for projects where this is already included (jar/java-version-mismatches)
This was the Initial Release
