Work is proceeding on my second article on the “Informa API”:http://informa.sourceforge.net/ – I’m currently refactoring the FeedManager class whose use forms the basis of the article. The FeedManager‘s job is to manage multiple feeds, and handle their lazy loading (which will fix a major flaw with the simple code presented in “my first article(Java.net – Using RSS in JSP pages)”:http://today.java.net/pub/a//today/2003/08/08/rss.html). I’m also getting to grips with OPML – support for which was added to Informa as of the 0.4.0 release by Niko Schmuck (Informa’s project manager), and will be adding a method to add channels from an OPML file to the FeedManager itself. All changes will be going back into the Informa code base – expect them to appear in the next release.
