I found this question and accepted answer on StackOverflow. It's related to the slow JSON parser in the standard Scala library.
The consensus as it were, is that the build-in JSON library is slow, and, in the words of DMC: "it's like that, and that's the way it is"
Maybe I'm just being naive here, but that sounds like a bad approach to grow the language. Shouldn't the built-in libraries be perfect? They don't have to be everything for everyone, and I accept that Scala is extendable. But, if there is a built-in library, then surely it should be rock solid and as fast as the language have to offer.
I'm lodging a complaint with Star Command ;-)
Does anyone know where or how a normal guy like me can voice my opinion on this, i.e. where we can go to help shape the Scala language?
This question was not intended in any negative way. Scala, it's creators and the Scala community is choc-full off goodness. I was simply surprised to see that something like the built-in JSON parser was far from optimal (according to the question in the link provided)
