Subject Removing ObjectModelHelper.getCookie()
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2005 13:35:51 GMT
Hi all,

When splitting the XSP block from the core, the getCookie() method that 
existed (and still exists) on XSPCookieHelper method was copied to 
ObjectModelHelper as it was also used by *one* class outside of the XSP 
block, which is DatabaseCookieAuthenticatorAction.

This method has IMO really nothing to do there as ObjectModelHelper is 
meant to provide high-level access methods to the object model and 
furthermore the contract of this getCookie() method is weird (mixes 
named and positional access to cookies).

So I would like to have it removed.

Now it was part of the 2.1.7 release, meaning some people may have used 
it, despite its weirdness. So I would like to deprecate it at a high 
level (i.e. error rather than the standard warning) in 2.1.8 and 
completely remove it in 2.2.
