Subject [jira] [Commented] (IO-157) [FileUtils] Return target File from copyFileToDirectory()
Date Fri, 08 Apr 2011 16:36:05 GMT

Sebb commented on IO-157:
-------------------------

Binary compatibility relies on the API signature, which includes the return type, but does
not include the throws clause.

So you can have a binary compatible jar which is not source-compatible, and vice-versa.

> It would be useful if the FileUtils.copyFileToDirectory() method returned the target
file to which it does the copy.  Currently, it creates the target File object, passes it to
copyFile(), and discards the reference.  This could just be returned from the method instead.
