Description

Name: dk30142			Date: 02/20/2003


We added serialVersionUID in 1.4.2.  Even if the source
file defines the trailing "L" as uppercase:

       private static final long serialVersionUID = -5836846270535785032L;

the generated HTML displays it as lowercase, which looks
very much like the number "1":

       serialVersionUID: -5836846270535785032l

EVALUATION Josh strongly recommends this change. ###@###.### 2003-09-23 As mentioned by Scott, the fix for 4904495 had the side-effect of making the 'L' uppercase. That means this bug has already been fixed. ###@###.### 2003-09-28
