Hi Marc

JSR 311 at least supports regular expressions for template matching - which
is better than the current UriTemplate class I am working with, which in
turn was what led me to post to the list. I was curious to know how, or
where, matching might be considered with reference to the UriTemplate draft.

Maybe this is the answer...

" While URI Templates use a notation that is similar to some URI path
matching notations in web frameworks, URI Templates were not designed for
that use case, nor are they appropriate for that purpose. URI Templates are
not URIs, they do not identify an abstract or physical resource, they are
not to be treated like URIs, nor should not be used in places where a URI
would be expected."

I think a profile of the spec is needed for matching. E.g. {a}{b} is  
ambiguous for matching since you don't know where {a} ends and {b}  
starts in a given URI. We are only using the basic {var} syntax in JSR  
311 (http://jsr311.dev.java.net/) for matching.
