[protege-dev] WebProtégé - deprecation of EntityData class

Hi Karl,

Please don’t use any EntityData related structures at all.  They will be removed at some point.

The mechanism for selection has also changed (you’ll find the changes in master) and it’s likely to evolve further.  It’s possible that we could broaden the scope, but the selection mechanism is only really meant to apply to entities.  

I suppose what you could do with is the ability to inject an arbitrary object into a portlet when it’s constructed.  Unfortunately, this isn’t possible with the current infrastructure (it is actually possible in an incubator version of webprotege, but this is ages away from seeing the light of day).  I’ll have a think of a way around this.  Can you elaborate on your use case?  Do you need a common object per project, per application or both?

In some of the work I'm doing I need to pass around things between portlets (e.g., employing the Selectable interfaces) which aren't necessarily OWL constructs, but rather URIs and strings, among other things for search engine integration purposes. I've so far been using EntityData objects, as supported by Selectable, for this. That is perhaps not ideal given the naming/purpose of the EntityData class, but it works all the same. However, the deprecation warnings on EntityData scare me a little.. so any comments on what's going to happen here in the future?
