RE: FW: [antlr-interest] Java Cross Referencer "head start" at an tlr. org
- Hi Matt,
I'm not sure what strategy would be best for class loading. I would be
interested in your AggregateClassLoader.
The end result of this work will be a commercial application. I would be
happy to share any work on getting the refs.g grammar completed to resolve
references. That should lead to one or more methods in CodeProject.java
like refMethod(). I see the needs of interested programmers diverging at
that point, anyway.

Jim: I would recommend that on your phase II, you
open up the class loading to pull from any specified
classloader or set of classloaders (I have an
implementation of an AggregateClassLoader for this
purpose if you want it). This way a client of your
code should be able to use a different JRE than the
runtime, or they can use the default if they like.
What license do you plan to use with your work?

commercial) head start out. It would be great to have a nice java cross-referencer as
BSD or public domain so I'll help all I can. Sorry about the vague state of the software
as I left it on the side 2 years ago. The grammars should be just about up to date wi
the antlr.org grammar.
Stupid viruses caused yahoogroups to stop sending me antlr-interest mail so I'm
behind. School starts tomorrow too, but I should have time to help.
Perhaps Jim you and I should speak by phone to get started. Just email me directly.
