Subject [jira] Created: (PDFBOX-422) Methods are marked as deprecated but they're effectively dead

Methods are marked as deprecated but they're effectively dead
-------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: PDFBOX-422
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-422
             Project: PDFBox
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Text extraction
    Affects Versions: 0.8.0-incubator
            Reporter: Gustavo Hexsel


There are several methods on PDFTextStripper and PDFStreamEngine that are marked @deprecated,
but they are not really used by the existing infrastructure anymore.

This would be ok if such methods weren't callbacks.  In this case, it breaks pre-existing
code, and prevents the compiler from letting you know the methods are not to be used anymore.

Simply removing the methods would have been a much better solution in this case. 

Example of said methods:

org.apache.pdfbox.util.PDFTextStripper#processLineSeparator
org.apache.pdfbox.util.PDFTextStripper#processWordSeparator
org.apache.pdfbox.util.PDFTextStripper#writeCharacters
