Release 2.3 – Sept 16, 2008

Type Changes By
Update Better generics: avoid the need for casting when calling methods like WebClient.getPage(), HtmlPage.getHtmlElementById(), ... NOTE: This change avoids casting so that code like 'HtmlImage e = (HtmlImage) page.getHtmlElementById("myImage")' can be written as 'HtmlImage e = page.getHtmlElementById("myImage")'. HOWEVER, due to a bug in Sun Java 5 compiler (fixed in Java 6 and not existing for instance in Eclipse), calling directly a method from the base return type without assigning the result to a variable will produce a compilation error. A simple workaround consists in changing code like 'page.getHtmlElementById("foo").asText()' to 'page.&lt;HtmlElement&gt;getHtmlElementById("foo").asText()' (or assigning the result of the 'getHtmlElementById("foo")' call to an intermediate variable). asashour
