Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49703] [PATCH] resolve compilation and javadoc warnings
Date Wed, 18 Aug 2010 09:47:00 GMT

Overall I was attempting to remove the deprecation warnings in FOP deriving
from TextHandler#drawString. See inline below for specific answers.

The prior deprecation of the drawString method appeared to be an incomplete
solution. In particular, StrokedTextHandler.java provided an implementation
that continued to use a local reference to the G2D instance.

I introduced it as a counterpart to the more generic TextHandlerAdapter in
order to allow clients of the commons library to not encounter deprecation
reports due to their use of PSTextHandler. However, I see I mistakenly had
PSTextHandlerAdapter implementing TextHandler rather than PSTextHandler, which
was my intent.

Generally speaking, with


I was trying to hide the deprecation of #drawString(String...) in external
clients since the adapters provided an adequate solution.

Having said that, I am open to other solutions, such as leaving the original
deprecation in place, but with a time schedule or specific release target for
its removal.
