Subject RE: .HttpCacheEntry.getVariantURIs() is deprecated - can we delete it?
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2011 11:23:59 GMT
Well, the tradeoff here is that it breaks binary compatibility with the previous 4.1 beta releases.


I'm ok with removing it; we don't use it internally in the codebase anywhere anymore, and
I think it's unlikely someone built a new storage backend that relied on it or tried to extend
the cache module internals based on the beta release. I'd certainly like to avoid shipping
new GA code where some of the new stuff is deprecated out of the starting gate. :)

However, I'd like to hear Oleg's opinion on this -- he has pretty strong feelings about binary
compatibility (certainly well-placed when talking about backwards compatibility for GA releases).

.HttpCacheEntry.getVariantURIs() is deprecated.

Given that the class is @since 4.1, do we need to keep the method?

If not, we should add Javadoc to say when it was deprecated and when
will be removed
