@PublicApi public interface


Known Indirect Subclasses


This interface is designed for plugins to consume (call its methods).

Clients of @PublicApi can expect that programs compiled against a given version will remain binary compatible with later versions of the @PublicApi as per each product's API policy as long as the client does not implement/extend @PublicApi interfaces or classes (refer to each product's API policy for the exact guarantee---usually binary compatibility is guaranteed at least across minor versions).

Note: since @PublicApi interfaces and classes are not designed to be implemented or extended by clients, we may perform certain types of binary-incompatible changes to these classes and interfaces, but these will not affect well-behaved clients that do not extend/implement these types (in general, only classes and interfaces annotated with @PublicSpi are safe to extend/implement).

Class Overview

The change history items only include the date of change - for indexing and searching you need a date range.

Public Methods

public List<ChangeHistoryItem> buildDateRanges (Issue issue, List<ChangeHistoryItem> items)

issue The issue that is being currently indexed
items A Collection of all the @link ChangeHistoryItem)s for that issue.
  • A list of items with date ranges This method then iterates the list and creates the date ranges - it also ensures there is always an 'initial' change state.
