Javadoc for method of class java.beans.Introspector

public static synchronized String[] getBeanInfoSearchPath()

says nothing about default value of search path.
Specification for this initial value has been removed from javadoc 
due to bug fix #4234304 as implementation specific information.
This implementation specific information should be included to 
documentation. So, javadoc for this method should contain assertion likes follow:
"Default value for this array is implementation dependent, 
e.g. SUN implementation initialy sets it to {"sun.beans.infos"}."

EVALUATION > In my mind, the "bad form" aspect is that once you mention it > for one platform, you are "favoring" that platform over others > (and the list can never be complete or guaranteed accurate). > But including an example seems fine to me. > I see no problem with the wording suggested in the second bug > report: > > "Default value for this array is implementation dependent, > e.g. SUN implementation initialy sets it to {"sun.beans.infos"}." > > This would seem to satisfy both bug requests. Would this be > acceptable? This is fine with me. ###@###.### Fixed as mentioned above. ###@###.### 2003-09-05
