    api vs internal

    Tom Baeyens Master

      i'm going to start a renaming and package restructuring.

      the main goal is to better separate the api from the implementation from a usage perspective. the goal is not to support different implementations. but to make it clear to a user when they are using intended api classes and when they are using internal classes.

      this will also help us to prioritize what needs to be tested.

      as far as i can see now, the main api classes are what is now located in org.jbpm.pvm. i went over those yesterday and i removed all dependencies outside of that package (except for the method implementations of the ProcessFactory)

      i will probably structure the internal classes under org.jbpm.internal or org.jbpm.pvm.internal

      so users will very clearly see when they start to use internals instead of the api.

          this is a good idea as this will improve the PVM usability.

          on the tests side, I agree we should focus on the api level first and the on the internals.

          For the package name I would prefer org.jbpm.pvm.internal
