JAPI Won't Fix List

JAPI is not perfect. JAPI has some flaws. This page lists these known flaws along with reasons why they won't be fixed.

GPL license
That's not a flaw but a feature. Writing non-free or non-open source programs that merely use JAPI is okay as long as you do not make changes to JAPI sources. Please remember that donations are welcome.
XML support for property files
That's not a flaw in JAPI but a flaw in java.util.ResourceBundle, which only uses the properties capabilities, but not the XML capabilities of the java.util.Properties class. If you want this improved, talk to SUN or provide us with a patch. Anyway, the resource bundle handling is a bit broken because it is hard to provide factories for other resource bundle storages without "patching" the original Java.
