I could not find a method which would return a package object given a name from a rule base. All that we have is the getPackages() method which returns an array. Incases when i want to get a given package, i am forced to iterate over the array checking for a given package name.
It would be a nice feature to have a getPackage() accepting a name and returning a package object against it. As a work around i have extended the ReotooRuleBase to add a new method which will do this. In turn i can have my app use the new rule base. I am sure extending a rule base is not so recommended.
Pl let me know the feasibility of this change. If required i can raise a JIRA on this.
