Description Svata Dedic 2002-05-22 09:59:36 UTC
The API should allow to obtain a ClassPath from a
library, or other domain-specific services (the
module that defines the service must ensure that
it is registered somehow).
The API may be already covered by ClassPath API,
and/or other generic lookup APIs such as Lookup or
JNDI; but that is yet to be proven.

Adjusting milestone for planning
Comment 2 _ pkuzel 2003-05-19 14:06:11 UTC
Library has Lookup getLookup() method. It's a proxy lookup that merges
all items provided by all respective library content contributors.

Particular content of the lookup is given by providing module. The
module often is also a client of that content. Other modules can use
it if the module exports content class as its API.
