Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-370) Document thread safety of classes
Date Fri, 26 Feb 2010 04:44:27 GMT


Henri Yandell commented on LANG-370:

Let's agree first then on a format to declare threadsafe vs not threadsafe. Very easy to go
through and identify it once we know how.

We know that JCIP anno's are out of the question until it's in the JDK.

We could duplicate that, but I think we also need to identify how we would tell the user.
I think that would either be by a) A Maven report (which means writing a plugin), b) in the
Javadoc or c) a HTML page generated from the source code through some other means.

I think in the Javadoc feels best. Having @ will annoy it, so we just need some other mechanism.

Any thoughts?
