deprecatedOverriding

@getter @setter @beanGetter @beanSetter @deprecatedInheritance("Scheduled for being final in the future", "2.13.0") class deprecatedOverriding(message: String, since: String) extends StaticAnnotation

An annotation that designates that overriding a member is deprecated.

Overriding such a member in a sub-class then generates a warning.

Library authors should state the library's deprecation policy in their documentation to give developers guidance on when a method annotated with @deprecatedOverriding will be finalized.

Library authors should prepend the name of their library to the version number to help developers distinguish deprecations coming from different libraries:

class Foo { @deprecatedOverriding("this method will be made final", "FooLib 12.0") def add(x: Int, y: Int) = x + y }class Bar extends Foo // no deprecation warning class Baz extends Foo { override def add(x: Int, y: Int) = x - y } // warning: overriding method add in class Foo is deprecated (since FooLib 12.0): this method will be made final // override def add(x: Int, y: Int) = x - y // ^
Value Params
message

the message to print during compilation if the member was overridden
