Known Indirect Subclasses
@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).
@PublicApiinterfaces 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
@PublicSpiare safe to extend/implement).
This interface defines a service method call result in JIRA that can contain human readable errors. New service
methods should prefer the generic
ErrorCollectionthat contains any errors that may have happened as a result of the validations.
