Will XWiki Activity Stream deprecation affect activitystream_events table?

ktc
Hi devs,

Right now we are building a feature based on XWiki Activity Stream and get
data from activitystream_events table from database. We've heard that XWiki
will replace Activity Stream with Notification. Does this mean
activitystream_events table will be deprecated as well? If it is, do you
have any suggestions for replacement like where we can get similar data from
database and which application/extension with similar support features that
we can rely on? Thanks a lot!

Hi.

Notifications will replace the Activity Stream (probably next year), but
only on the surface. Currently, all events are stored by Activity Stream,
and the Notifications Application loads the event from there.

Note that accessing the "activitystream_events" directly is not the
recommend practice as it may be replaced in the future. Instead, you should
use the more generic "Event Stream Module" :
http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/Event%20Stream%20Module
.

It provides an API to get the events. This is the API used by Notifications
to load the events.

I hope it helps,
