    clearForRecreate() function

    851159
      Hi,

      Iam using jdevloper version 11.1.1.4.0

      i want to know the functionality of clearForRecreate();

      This method is available for the iterator level. I reffered the API.

      "For internal use only. Application developers should not use this
      *** For internal framework use only *** Advanced internal method. "

      Iam going call this method. Iam not going to override. will it have any impact?


      Any Suggestion on this method usage.

          If there was a sign saying "No Trespassing, Be aware of the dogs!", would you access the property because you are not planning to take anything with you ? You would not. The ADF framework has public methods (and Classes) that are not to be used by application developers. Internal developers need these methods and there is no way really to hide them other than flagging them as "don't use them". Internal APIs may go away - and if you look at the JavaDocs for JUCtrlListBinding then you see that a bunch of those "don't use" methods are flagged as deprecated with no hint given of what replaces them. The risk of using internal APIs is that you are on your own, which may not be a problem at the moment but in the future could get you into trouble.

          So don't use it at all

              Just like the dogs, undocumented internal methods end up biting you in the a$$

              Sorry, couldn't resist that one.
