      Description



      Name: rmT116609 Date: 09/08/2003


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      In the description for java.security.Principal, one of "All Known Implementing Classes" is Identity. After clicking on it, one finds out that it is deprecated.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      It might be nice (just that) to see beforehand whether a class/interface is deprecated, without having to click on it, find out it is deprecated, and then going back. Also, there may be synonyms involved, so just using memory may not be enough.


      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Add "(deprecated)" after references in categories such as "Direct Known Subclasses", "All Known Implementing Classes". Or gather them at the end after an introductory "Deprecated:".
