Hi all
I have a base class � WebContainer from which I derive two classes, Request class and Response class.
WebContainer is a like aMap and donate both get() and set() methods for both derived classes .
The entire project is packaged into a jar and distributed to other development teams.
The team's has no need of calling request.set(objId) or response.get(objId), they only use request.get(objId) and
All set() method usages are restricted to classes in the jar file (sevarel of packages) .
What I can do is declare the request.set , and response.get methods as deprecated, so the teams will no not to use them ,
Is there any other way I can prevent them from accessing these methods?
Thank you
Sharon whipple

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
