Description Jaroslav Tulach 2007-03-21 10:49:43 UTC
metaInfServices is nice and low cost concept - it allows registrations just by 
putting JAR files on classpath. No need for org-openide-fs or 
org-openide-loaders, etc.

However for purposes of issue 98426 it would need a bit of generalization - an 
ability to search not only META-INF/services, but do the search for any other 

I'll attach a simple patch that does that.

Comment 2 Jaroslav Tulach 2007-03-21 12:10:52 UTC
The previous patch contains implementation of Lookups.metaInfServices(prefix), 
plus some additional stuff that can be ignored. Are there any objections 
against the new metaInfServices method?
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2007-03-21 22:19:06 UTC
I don't see what the intended purpose of this is. We already have too many
registration mechanisms in NB, IMHO - this would just add one more.
