Remove legacy splash screen code (nsSplashScreen, MOZ_SPLASHSCREEN, splash.bmp) now that no platforms use it


(Core :: General, defect)

Not set

My patch in bug 652445 (once it lands) removes nsSplashScreenWin.cpp, since it was only used under WinCE.

This leaves all other platforms using nsSplashScreenDummy.cpp:

...which does nothing but return null:

These files can thus be removed:
- /toolkit/xre/nsSplashScreenDummy.cpp
- /toolkit/xre/nsSplashScreen.h

Which leaves MOZ_SPLASHSCREEN unused, so can be removed:

And also several splash.bmp files unused, so can be removed:

Not sure who to ask for review, since this touches a few areas + looking at the hg logs wasn't conclusive. Picked you due to: ; but please let me know if I should be asking someone else. Thanks!

(Note: This patch applies on top of the ones in bug 652445, which haven't yet landed).

I'd like Benjamin to assert he's ok with this then I think it's good to go.

Patch v1

I am 99% sure that the Android splash screen does not use this code, but please confirm that with mfinkle before landing this.

Mark, bsmedberg has asked that I check with you regarding comment 4. The MXR links in comment 1 make me believe that Android does not use nsSplashScreen - but if you could confirm here, that would be great. Thanks!
Android does not use this code for a splashscreen. We use the Java loader code to display a splashscreen, before the Mozilla platform is really even initialized.

However, here is a patch to add splash screen support to maemo/meego and it uses this code. See bug 643122.

Lets hold off on removing the splashscreen support until we see if Meego, and any other new mobile platforms, might need it.
Thanks for the heads up.

Suspect even if bug 643122 lands in it's nsSplashScreen using form, there are going to be unused splash.bmp files from the WinCE era (eg the nightly/aurora splash.bmp are out of date); but will just be easier to wait until the dust settles on that bug before moving this one further...
