JSR-108 has been replaced
|Table of Contents|
We make use of a Units library for keeping track of the difference between meters and feet etc... We have been making use of an offical JSR-108 jar.
There were two replacements available once we upgraded to Java 5
The JSR-275 jar is now officially available:
The work has been completed.
- Andrea Aime +1
- Ian Turton
- Justin Deoliveira
- Jody Garnett +1
- Martin Desruisseaux +1
- Simone Giannecchini +0
This section is used to make sure your proposal is complete (did you remember documentation?) and has enough paid or volunteer time lined up to be a success.
- Fix the dependency in GeoAPI, and deploy a new jar
- Fix any and all compile errors (mostly import statements; but may make use of the Quantity package with Java 5 generics and catch a few mistakes)
- Update the user guide; there is very little documentation on Units use so this will not take long.
Change the import; use Quantity package.
There is one additional change related to Converter. I will document it in this page when I will make this change in GeoTools. Since I don't think that many use Converter directly, it will probably impact few peoples.

Note the class name change from
We will need to change the following:
- Developers Guide references to JSR-108
- User Guide references to JSR-108
