Description Jaroslav Tulach 2002-02-06 10:05:28 UTC
An often request is the ability to add cookies to different loaders. This may
not be desirable for some cases, but if needed, the architecture should support
it. And it is desirable to do it on datasystem layer, because other layers are
just presentations of this one.

The addition should be declarative and activated just when the loader really
needs to provide the cookie, so no classes are loaded and no code executed
during the registration.

One of the request can be found at

We plan to do something similar in XML module, so if we could use
OpenIDE solution it would be great.
Comment 3 David Strupl 2002-08-21 15:31:11 UTC
First implementation of getLookup() on new DataObject is on branch
ds_16389. It uses the old datasystem though (FolderLookup).

Changed owner David S. -> David K.
Comment 5 David Konecny 2003-04-30 15:38:44 UTC
Changing TM to FUTURE for several DataSystem enhancements. The DS are planned
for rewrite and so it does not make sense to invest time into these
enhancements. If you think the issue is important and should be fixed for 4.0
then feel free to let me know. I'm open to change the plan.
Comment 6 Jaroslav Tulach 2005-01-28 08:48:53 UTC
Any need for this with new project system?
