Description David Konecny 2003-09-30 10:16:35 UTC
SUBJ says it. The core/settings module is soon to be deprecated and replaced by openide/convertor. At the moment Registry uses both core/settings and Convertor API for instance creation, but it is temporary solution. The goal is to stop using core/settings and old Datasystems at all. Please rewrite all your convertors to new API. The Convertor API is documented at <http://www.netbeans.org/download/dev/javadoc/ConvertorAPI/index.html>. The significant differencies are: * convertors are stateless (no Lookup parameter) * no autosave mechanism * simplified registration * format of persited data is namespace aware XML only Lifecycle of objects in Registry is summarized in <http://openide.netbeans.org/proposals/loaders/settings/objectlifecycle.html>.

I'm changing this to P1. I would like to merge impl of DS-free core/registry to trunk soon. Otherwise I have to maintain trunk and branch what is additional overhead. Please let me know what is your plan about this task. Thx.
