Re: [groovy-user] Deprecation of DefaultGroovyMethods.consumeProcessOutput()

Paul King

This sounds like an Eclipse bug.

Using the DGM#consumeProcessOutput() method directly isn't
part of the published api of Groovy but we have found in the
past that some frameworks took the liberty of calling such methods
so we flag them using deprecated when we do file/package moves.
This should be totally transparent to you. Eclipse should skip
deprecated methods when determining DGM enhancements.

Cheers, Paul.
