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

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

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.
