Subject [jira] [Commented] (SANSELAN-42) IPTCConstants: final arrays are not immutable
Date Sat, 04 Feb 2012 07:11:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SANSELAN-42?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13200355#comment-13200355
] 

Damjan Jovanovic commented on SANSELAN-42:
------------------------------------------

Most of these ALL_* and *_TYPES arrays are pre-Java-1.5 ways of doing Enums and their values()
method.

It seems like a good idea to do both together: convert to use of Enums, and make arrays immutable
in the process. It's an API breaking change, but the API for the 1.0 release has been broken
already.

> formats.jpeg.iptc.IPTCConstants contains the following public static final arrays:
> IPTC_PREFIX
> IPTC_TYPES
> Array element are not immutable, even if the array itself is, so the entries could potentially
be corrupted accidentally or deliberately.
> IPTC_PREFIX does not appear to be used, so could perhaps be deleted. If not, it could
be made private and a getter added.
> IPTC_TYPES only appears to be used in IPTCTypeLookup, so could potentially be moved there
and made private.
