Description Jesse Glick 2002-11-28 14:34:54 UTC
This kind of lookup is now widely used throughout
NB, and it would make sense to me for it to be
accessible. Would also eliminate an ugly hack in
core - use of reflection to access it.

Rather than making the class itself public,
suggest moving it to org.openide.util.lookup.*
package, and add to Lookups:

public static Lookup
metaInfServicesLookup(ClassLoader l);

Fine with me.
Comment 2 David Strupl 2003-02-05 13:30:33 UTC
Done in trunk - openide version increased to 3.35.
