[jira] [Created] (MATH-915) Backward compatibility broken in "EmpiricalDistribution"

Gilles Sadowski (Jira)
Gilles created MATH-915:

             Summary: Backward compatibility broken in "EmpiricalDistribution"
                 Key: MATH-915
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-915
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Gilles
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 3.1

There is a binary-compatibility problem in {{o.a.c.m.random.EmpiricalDistribution}} (cf. "Clirr" report).

Usage of "RandomDataImpl" has been replaced by "RandomDataGenerator".
However, unless I'm mistaken, none of those is actually necessary. Moreover, the "randomData" field in this class "shadows" the (deprecated) protected field in the super class. Also, it duplicates functionality (RNG) already present in the super class (through the the "random" protected field).
