Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-4038) Remove org.apache.cordova.api in favour of org.apache.cordova
Date Sat, 29 Jun 2013 02:03:19 GMT


Andrew Grieve commented on CB-4038:

Marcel - nosy is good!

I definitely want to do this, but Joe was concerned that deprecating the classes now would
get lost in the noise of 3.0. I'd like to deprecate (or even just remove?) for 3.0 since people
will be going through their plugins and updating them to the new spec. 

Now that I think about it more, it may be better to just not add @Deprecated and instead remove
the classes entirely.

Updating an import path seems like a simple thing to fix "while your at it", and a deprecation
warning probably won't be enough to get people to do so.

> Having two different packages hurts our ability to use package-private visibility, and
therefore forces us to make non-API symbols public.
> We should get move classes that are in .api into the main package so that internal symbols
can be made package-private.
> For the deprecation period, we'll leave classes in .api that extend the moved copies.
