Subject Deprecated: ActionError
Date Tue, 13 Jan 2004 14:15:54 GMT
Hi,

i watched at the sources and figured out, that
ActionError is deprecated so that i have to use ActionMessage. Okay.

The add() in ActionErrors is also deprecated, because of first. fine.

So i watched the Validator-Sources (class FieldChecks)
i saw there ist ActionMessages in use for "errors".
for the deliverd Methods.

So i looked at our validate() in ActionForm,
but there is still ActionErrors.

So i wondered, why the validator uses Messages and
the validate() uses Erros...

and also i saw, that the validator gets
initialized with an ActionErrors-object in:  Resources.initValidator();

inside of initValidator()
this happends:
validator.setParameter(ACTION_ERRORS_PARAM, errors)

but "key" for errors is this:
    private static String ACTION_ERRORS_PARAM =
        "org.apache.struts.action.ActionMessages";


the first parameter of "setParameter()" is called: "parameterClassName".
so the errors gets initialized as an ActionMessages-object, isn´t?


so question:
why is the ActionErrors not deprecated?

in release-notes i saw:
"Although not removed, in many cases you should replace the deprecated
ActionErrors with the preferred ActionMessages to ensure correct
operation."


why not in all?

it would be fine, to know this ;-)

greetings

Matthias
