Subject [PATCH] Immutability Patch 2
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2001 02:14:12 GMT
Yup, its me again!  :)

The issue that Peter brought up with ant/antcall is being addressed in this
patch.  Property was modified to allow setting user properties without
warning, but that mode cannot be enabled from a <property> statement (I
removed the setUserProperty method as it was undocumented and probably only
used by ant/antcall under the covers).

Project had several calls to setProperty in it, which in theory could
generate a deprecated warning.  I added an internal method to allow setting
"basedir" and a couple of other places to set a property silently if it
wasn't a user property (setPropertyInternal, its protected, although private
would have been ok with me too).

I modified getProperties and getUserProperties to return copies of the
collections to prevent modifications of properties that way.

I updated WHATSNEW (maybe the <available> back door shouldn't be mentioned
there - maybe we should just close that open door :).

This should be yet another step forward in the battle against property
mutability.  Let me know if there are any problems with this patch or if
I've missed something.
