Create KApplicationTrader (KMimeTypeTrader without the serviceType argument)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This will allow to deprecate both KServiceTypeTrader and KMimeTypeTrader, in order to make sure those are not used for loading plugins anymore, only for querying for applications.

First step is to review list of users of KMimeTypeTrader/KServiceTypeTrader and check that they are either plugin loading use cases or application calls (i.e. by passing the "Application" argument as servicetype). But it seems very likely, it's hard to think of a use case for using servicetypes for applications.
