Description Ralf Hauser 2010-03-08 06:55:57 UTC
Created attachment 25103 [details]

having kind of 'synchronized' arrays, i.e. one of Strings and another one of Integers appears to be a questionable programming pattern to me.

Pls find attached a hopefully more OO approach

oops, the related RFE should have been Bug 48863

Why did you submit a patch with deprecated items in it? Instead of documenting the items to be deprecated, just go all the way with the enum.

Also, I'm not sure that BootLocation necessarily needs to implement CharSequence. I think it would be cleaner for BootLocation to simply contain a String (location) and enum type.

I don't happen to like the name BootLocation but that's just a matter of taste. Maybe RepositoryLocation?

Fixed in trunk and will be in 7.0.9 onwards. Since I agree with Chris's views, the patch applied was along those lines.
