Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-561) unescapeHtml has been dropped without going through deprecation
Date Tue, 08 Dec 2009 08:37:18 GMT


Henri Yandell commented on LANG-561:

Agreed that unescapeHtml3 needs Javadoc.

I don't see any reason to deprecate unescapeHtml. There is lots of backwards incompatible
changes in Lang, there's no point trying to sugar coat other changes and putting the pain
off until later. Better to get it done with now when people are having to go to the work of
making their code work.

>             Fix For: 3.0
> The method StringEscapeUtils.unescapeHtml() is missing from version 3.0, yet is not deprecated
in 2.4.
> As far as I can tell, unescapeHtml is now called unescapeHtml4.
> ISTM that unescapeHtml should be reinstated (and deprecated), and perform the same function
as Html4.
> Another issue - unescapeHtml3 has no Javadoc.
