Palette client support does not need the DataNode's constructor because item
nodes are created using own environment provider implementation.
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2005-08-19 16:18:03 UTC
It's still a valid enhancement that we should do for other potential clients, I
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2005-08-19 16:20:15 UTC
Not currently under review however.

Probably would work best if DataObject implemented Lookup.Provider. Is there
such an issue filed already?

I'll apply this patch, this one is well done and simple. With respect to 
DataObject implementing Lookup.Provider, would be nice, but I am not in that

apichanges: have to change <date> and <author> of course. And <description>
should be improved. <summary> also has a typo. And should have an 'id'.

Javadoc implies that DataNode.getCookie will behave correctly when you use this
constructor. But I do not think that is so, unless some magic in Node makes it
so. Perhaps DataNode.getCookie needs to be changed to first check in the Lookup
provided in the constructor (if one *was* provided in the constructor -
otherwise there would be an infinite loop). Should be easy to unit test this, I
guess. Also any change in the Lookup ought to fire a PROP_COOKIES, just in case.

Tim I know you had an interest in DataObject.getLookup(). Did you ever file it
