Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2590) Update public API in readme to clarify what's included
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2014 21:51:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2590?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13955763#comment-13955763
] 

Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-2590:
----------------------------------------

Would it be useful to also to make a statement about compatible between 1.X and 1.(x+1) releases.
 Deprecated methods may be dropped and methods may be added.  Anything not deprecated should
continue to work.

> Due to confusion expressed on the mailing list, edit the README section on the public
API to make unambiguous:
> # the list of packages included (e.g. "all packages under org.apache.accumulo.core.client,
save those named 'impl'")
> # that public Classes and Interfaces in those packages are covered
> # that within said Classes and Interfaces, we include
> ## public and protected members
> ## public and protected methods
> ## public and protected constructors
> ## public and protected inner Classes and Interfaces
> And that "compatibility" means binary compatibility as defined in the [Java Language
Spec v3, Chapter 13|http://docs.oracle.com/javase/specs/jls/se5.0/html/binaryComp.html]
