      Description

      Name: tb29552 Date: 10/22/2003


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      We should encourage people to move from "new Boolean()" to Boolean.TRUE, Boolean.FALSE by deprecating the constructor and documented the aforementioned alternative methods.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      Using Boolean.TRUE, Boolean.FALSE leads to improved performance, reduced memory footprint. Many developers are unaware of this recent addition and continue to use the constructor. A deprecation should formalize this migration route.
