Subject [jira] [Created] (POOL-268) Remove throws <RuntimeException> from all method signatures
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2014 11:47:19 GMT
Michael Osipov created POOL-268:

             Summary: Remove throws <RuntimeException> from all method signatures
                 Key: POOL-268
             Project: Commons Pool
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.2
            Reporter: Michael Osipov

Unfortunately, many signatures carry a {{throws <RuntimeException>}} like {{IllegalStateException}},
etc. This is incorrect. A runtime exception never appears in the signature but only in the
Javadocs because runtime exception indicate a programming error.

This violates against Java programming rules and Joshua Bloch's Effective Java.
