Subject RE: 2.2 migration - my approach
Date Sat, 01 Feb 2003 17:32:22 GMT
I think you are right Walt, I've made a mistake thinking switching 
from NumberKey to int would be better than Integer. It relates to my 
other message from yesterday too.

I'd submit an update to the doc, to strongly recommend Integer 
(null/non-null testing) over int, but I'm still working on the 
migration here. Now I'll add reworking this part to my list. Whew. I 
wish the migration suggestions included "You'll be happier if you use 
Integer" somewhere.

While I'm posting, I did get my project to compile without making a 
bunch of logic changes to my code... but had to resort to a bit of 
ugliness which, unless there's a better way, explains to me why 
there's no deprecated methods provided for those of us who dived in 
at 2.1... since a method cannot request the return type, I had to 
change my source to call a new deprecated method name for "get" 
requests:

public NumberKey getBlogId_DEPnumberkey()
{
           logDeprecated();
           Integer idI = new Integer( getBlogId() );
           return new NumberKey( idI.toString() );
}
