Code Cleanups

I'm not sure where to put that. I'm pretty sure I am not as experienced as the most guys here, but (I'm playing a bit with Shapes) why do you use this.getWith(); to get a protected property of a parent class. I mean protected is visible to all childs. And as I understand calling a is always more expensive to the cpu than just use this.mWidth;

This might be a tiny thing, but I guess an game engine needs every optimisation it can get to be more faster - right?

There was also another thing I remeber from an ibm website. Something like top 10 mistakes in java. In Java properties visibility is class based not instance based. So in case you have methods which take the same class as the object itself you can access the properties also via this.foobar instead of otherObject.getFoobar();

(p.s. i there in the forum a page of all threads I was active in?)

Well this always depends on the field, but in this case it might be useful.

You can view all your posts at least: search.php?author_id=1411&sr=posts
