Subject [jira] [Created] (SIS-198) Remove "remarks" property from ImmutableIdentifier (replaced by "description")
Date Mon, 13 Apr 2015 11:11:12 GMT
Martin Desruisseaux created SIS-198:

             Summary: Remove "remarks" property from ImmutableIdentifier (replaced by "description")
                 Key: SIS-198
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Metadata
    Affects Versions: 0.5
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
            Assignee: Martin Desruisseaux
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.6

The new revision pf ISO 19115 published in 2013 introduces a new property in {{Identifier}}:
a {{description}} as a human-readable text. This description duplicates our non-standard {{remarks}}
property. Since {{ImmutableIdentifier.remarks}} was non-standard and {{Identifier.description}}
is standard by now, we should remove {{remarks}} in favour of {{description}}.

An exception to this change is when the identifier is deprecated. In such case, the {{remarks}}
property is useful for specifying what is the replacement. But we can keep this property in
the {{Deprecable}} interface only.

I side effect of this change is that {{ImmutableIdentifier}} does not need to implement {{Deprecable}}
