Deprecated Java methods
June 09, 2007 12:15AM
There a couple of places in the current Java code that use methods or types which are officially "deprecated". It should be a small and straightforward task to see what the currently non-deprecated equivalents are, make the small changes to the Reprap sources to use them, compile and test.

This would be a really good way for a Java programmer to get started in the Reprap host code; these are small simple changes to make. I'm therefore *not* going to rush in and fix them up myself... I'm hoping there is someone out there reading this who can make a first small step into Reprap host development by doing this and posting a diff or two (or just the entire changed files, if you really want).

I am anything but a Java expert. Linux expert... maybe. Sysadmin expert... maybe. But not Java. If I can do this, others can too. Any volunteers? :-)

This is also in the Bug Tracker at [sourceforge.net]

Thanks to Dan P., we have a solution. Nice and simple, too.

I've committed the changes into Subversion.
