Hi,

for bug #257381 ("[Discovery] Reduce BREE to Java 1.4") [1] ECF needs a
backport of java.util.concurrent. The Distributed Computing Laboratory
at Emory University [2] provides such a backport and in my local tests
the lib seems to keep its promises.
Is anybody interested in such a backport in Orbit? Does it make sense to
have it in Orbit? If not, I won't go through the hassle of creating an
Orbit-esque version and simple embed it in the ECF consumer bundle.

Hi Markus,

I would be really interested to have the jsr 166 backported as orbit
bundle. We don't have the real need for this at the moment but I think
it would be worth. If you need helping hands, feel free to ping me.

Maybe it's worth to ask this on other newsgroups than the ECF one.

Hi Markus,

I think that a 1.4 version of concurrent probably can/could be in
Orbit...though I'm not sure about the usage/demand from other
projects...but you could send an email to orbit-dev to get their view
before doing the associated work.

BTW, what's the license for the backport? I can't seem to find it on
the sourceforge pages. In either case (Orbit or not), we'll have to get
IP approval (although perhaps a backport will be easier).

I'm not actually convinced, though, that moving the discovery ui down to
1.4 is necessary (bug 257381). Yes, it would be better, but given it's
UI level I'm not sure it's required.
