 * A utility for keeping backwards compatibility on previously abstract methods
 * (or similar replacements).
 * <p>Before the replacement method can be made abstract, the old method must kept deprecated.
 * If somebody still overrides the deprecated method in a non-final class,
 * you must keep track, of this and maybe delegate to the old method in the subclass.
 * The cost of reflection is minimized by the following usage of this class:</p>
 * <p>Define static final fields in the base class ({@code BaseClass}),
 * where the old and new method are declared:</p>
 * <pre>
 *  static final VirtualMethod<BaseClass> newMethod =
 *   new VirtualMethod<BaseClass>(BaseClass.class, "newName", parameters...);
 *  static final VirtualMethod<BaseClass> oldMethod =
 *   new VirtualMethod<BaseClass>(BaseClass.class, "oldName", parameters...);
 * </pre>
 * <p>This enforces the singleton status of these objects, as the maintenance of the cache would be too costly else.
 * If you try to create a second instance of for the same method/{@code baseClass} combination, an exception is thrown.
 * <p>To detect if e.g. the old method was overridden by a more far subclass on the inheritance path to the current
 * instance's class, use a <strong>non-static field:

* <pre> * final boolean isDeprecatedMethodOverridden = * oldMethod.getImplementationDistance(this.getClass()) > newMethod.getImplementationDistance(this.getClass()); * * <em>// alternatively (more readable): * final boolean isDeprecatedMethodOverridden = * VirtualMethod.compareImplementationDistance(this.getClass(), oldMethod, newMethod) > 0 * </pre> * <p>{@link #getImplementationDistance} returns the distance of the subclass that overrides this method. * The one with the larger distance should be used preferable. * This way also more complicated method rename scenarios can be handled * (think of 2.9 {@code TokenStream} deprecations).</p> * * @lucene.internal */ public final class VirtualMethod<C> { private static final Set<Method> singletonSet = Collections.synchronizedSet(new HashSet()); private final Class<C> baseClass; private final String method; private final Class<?>[] parameters; private final WeakHashMap<Class cache = new WeakHashMap<Class(); /** * Creates a new instance for the given {@code baseClass} and method declaration. * @throws UnsupportedOperationException if you create a second instance of the same * {@code baseClass} and method declaration combination.
