Subject Re: [Collections] NodeCachingLinkedList serialization / license issues?
Date Sun, 08 Dec 2002 21:39:40 GMT

This change makes this class unable to deserialize prior serialized forms of
this class. I'm not a committer, but I'd like to suggest that such a change
be voted on prior to inclusion. In order to retain the ability to
deserialize prior versions, readObject must issue a readInt call (to
retreive the int compatibility version) before continuing deserialization.
