Subject [jira] Created: (LUCENE-2012) Add @Override annotations
Date Tue, 27 Oct 2009 23:16:59 GMT
Add @Override annotations

                 Key: LUCENE-2012
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Uwe Schindler
             Fix For: 3.0

During removal of deprecated APIs, mostly the problem was, to not only remove the method in
the (abstract) base class (e.g. Scorer.explain()), but also remove it in sub classes that
override it. You can easily forget that (especially, if the method was not marked deprecated
in the subclass). By adding @Override annotations everywhere in Lucene, such removals are
simple, because the compiler throws out an error message in all subclasses which then no longer
override the method.

Also it helps preventing the well-known traps like overriding hashcode() instead of hashCode().

The patch was generated automatically, and is rather large. Should I apply it, or would it
break too many patches (but I think, trunk has changed so much, that this is only a minimum
of additional work to merge)?
