Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-719) Strange deprecations in API
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2011 18:51:39 GMT

Gilles commented on MATH-719:
-----------------------------

bq. Sorry if this doesn't belong here.

Indeed, you'd better bring this kind of issue to the "dev" ML. :)
The more so that there have been recent discussions about changing the matrix API and decisions
ought to be made quite soon now.

> RealMatrix has some very odd deprecations. In particular inverse(), getDeterminant()
and isSingular(). The last has the message:
> bq. Deprecated. as of release 2.0, replaced by the boolean negation of new LUDecompositionImpl(m).getSolver().isNonSingular()
> That's an implementation, not an interface. The whole point of having an interface is
that 
> * I can query whether a matrix is singular withou having to know about LUDecompositions
> * You guys can change the implementation of isSingular() if something better pops up
without us guys having to change our code.
> I'm not using these methods now, because they're deprecated, but I've basically recreated
them in as static methods in a utility class. Wouldn't it be much better to just put code
from the deprecation message into the method and remove the deprecation?
