Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-118) Change forceDelete API to return the boolean success
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2008 12:58:43 GMT


Niall Pemberton commented on IO-118:

I don't see the point of this now since deleteQuietly was introduced in 1.4 - why break compatibility
on forceDelete to make it work like deleteQuietly - when people can just use deleteQuietly?
Seems to me like we now provide two good options with both forceDelete() and deleteQuietly()
for whatever people prefer  - either return a boolean or throw an exception.

I think this ticket just predated deleteQuietly() (IO-135) and we should now close it as WONT
