Subject Re: [VOTE] Merge XGC color branch into Trunk
Date Mon, 01 Nov 2010 20:29:14 GMT
A few issues spotted after a quick review:
• there’s a non-ascii character (‘°’) in CIELabColorSpace.java
• ColorExtTest should be renamed into ColorWithAlternativesTest
• PSGenerator:
  • establishColorFromColor always returns true
  • therefore, the call to establishDeviceRBG in convertColorToPS will
    never be made and is unnecessary
• ICCColorSpaceExt
  • the name of the class is not informative. Better use
    ICCColorSpaceWithIntent or something like that
  • unimplemented methods should really throw an
    UnsupportedOperationException or be removed altogether. Their
    behaviour is likely to change once they are properly implemented,
    introducing regressions. Putting a comment in the Javadoc is not
    enough, especially since those methods can silently be called by
• there are missing svn properties on GrayScaleColorConverter and

More importantly, I keep thinking that there’s a design flaw in
ColorWithAlternatives. Its equals method breaks the contract defined on
Object.equals since it’s not symmetric. This is bound to cause
hard-to-track issues in client code. Also, the way equals is implemented
will make it systematically return false if an instance of
ColorWithAlternatives is being compared with an instance of a sub-class,
which may not be the desirable result.

Either ColorWithAlternatives is not a Color and therefore should not
extend the Color class; or its equals method should be changed to follow
the contract and the comparison of ColorWithAlternatives instances
should be implemented differently.

I don’t have the time nor the energy to submit a counter-proposal.
Therefore I’ll stay out of the way and vote -0.
