Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-6169) Reduce visibility of classes and methods under impl/sql
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2013 08:36:25 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6169?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Knut Anders Hatlen updated DERBY-6169:

    Attachment: derby-6169-07-a.diff

derby-6169-07-a.diff improves the encapsulation of the array of ProviderInfo objects returned
by CreateViewNode.getProviderInfo().

The getProviderInfo() method has to be public because it is used outside of the impl.sql.compile
package in which CreateViewNode lives. Instead of reducing the visibility of the method, the
patch makes getProviderInfo() return an immutable list view of the array, so that callers
cannot accidentally change the internal array. Since this method is currently only called
while invalidating a view, I don't think there are any performance concerns with adding a
thin wrapper around the array.

The patch also reduces the visibility of all fields in CreateViewNode and BasicProviderInfo
to private, and BasicProviderInfo's constructor to package private, in order to further protect
the internal state of these classes.

All tests passed with the patch.

> My IDE shows many warnings in the classes under impl/sql because they are public and
may make parts of the internal state more visible than necessary. I'd like to reduce the visibility
of classes and methods, if possible, to make it clearer to IDEs and tools that perform static
analysis that the code is only accessed from the same package, and reduce some of the noise
from the tools.
