Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-38) Rename packages to "org.apache.jspwiki"
Date Tue, 30 Dec 2008 08:22:44 GMT


Janne Jalkanen commented on JSPWIKI-38:

@Murray: everything is an API, both classes and interfaces, if it's public.  However, the
question is really about *stable* and *unstable* APIs. The .api package comes with a promise
(and hopefully, a test suite) to make sure that if you code against them only, your plugins
will work in the future.  And, if you do code against anything unstable, you know that it's
likely to break from major version to major version.

Currently, this is not the case.  We have even broken interfaces (like the PageFilter one)
between minor versions, which means that it's difficult for developers to keep up.

The JCR branch has nothing to do with this, really.

The API package does not mean that we lose any sense of the API hierarchy.  We can easily

If we choose to have so.

Having the interface in the same package as the concrete implementation has no advantage with
respect to protected members, since interfaces cannot have members at all...
