[edit] Memory Analyzer API Policy

This document provides the current API Policy for Memory Analyzer.


[edit] Declared API

The declared APIs in Memory Analyzer are provided as public and documented. The API compatibility between different versions of Memory Analyzer should be reflected by the version numbers, following the Eclipse versioning policy

Changes to the API - addind new APIs or deprecating APIs should be documented (e.g. in Bugzilla) and communicated to the community (e.g. via the newsgroups).

Deprecated API should be available for at lease one major release.


[edit] Provisional and internal API

Provisional APIs should be used while development is occurring. If successfully adopted, they might become declared APIs. If not, they can be removed. In any situation, the community should be notified.
