Description Jan Pokorsky 2008-03-12 18:54:03 UTC
It would be useful to allow ModificationResult to write changes into guarded sections of a document in case the API
client is aware of what he does.

My usecase is the BeanInfo refactoring. When I implement GuardedBlockHandler I can decide according to
ModificationResult.Difference if proposed changes are valid and in such case I could permit to write them to the document.

So what I propose is to add 2 methods to ModificationResult.Difference
 public boolean isGuarded();
 public void guards(boolean b);

The default behavior would remain the same. Modifications of guarded sections are forbidden by default.

I would like to ask for review of this simple change. TM will be 6.1
Comment 3 Tomas Zezula 2008-03-14 10:50:44 UTC
Missing @since and increase module version otherwise OK.
Comment 4 Dusan Balek 2008-03-14 11:11:42 UTC
Consider using of more descriptive method names - otherwise it is OK for me.
Comment 5 Jan Lahoda 2008-03-14 11:16:26 UTC
-the method names seem not very intuitive to me - would be nice if we could improve them (maybe forceWrite/isForceWrite?).
-implementation note: I would prefer use of NbDocument.runAtomic(AsUser) instead of BaseDocument.runAtomic(AsUser)
-please make sure that module(s) that will use these new methods depend on the new version of java.source (in order to
prevent problems with AU).
Comment 6 Jan Pokorsky 2008-03-14 11:35:30 UTC
TZ: sure, @since has lost while I was hg queuing. apichanges.xml is already there.

DB, JL01: I wanted names to be short. In case of making names really descriptive I would propose
setCommitToGuards(boolean allow)/isCommitToGuards()

JL02: There already was casting to BaseDocument. But I am fine to use NbDocument.

Thanks for comments.

Comment 7 Tomas Zezula 2008-03-14 11:46:43 UTC
setCommitToGuards(boolean allow) is good.
