Hi, Thomas and Stefan,
>>1.) org.postgis.Point (and other classes) use public fields to store all
>>their data! What's the reason for this rather odd design decision?
There's another discussion topic here:
At least for JTS, their general design approach is to treat all geometry
objects as unmodifiable, and instead of modifying a geometry in place,
operations create new geometries. I know that their code does not 100%
reflect his, but it is what they advise.
Having a similar model for PostGIS would mean to make all public fields
final, or to only provide getter methods and no setter methods. How
would this interfere with your plans?
