Chapter 23. Deprecations

This section outlines deprecations in Neo4j 3.0.0-M03 or earlier in order to help you find a smoother transition path to future releases. All features listed below may be removed in a future major release.

Cypher ExecutionEngine
There’s no need to use ExecutionEngine anymore. Instead, use the execute methods on GraphDatabaseService. ExecutionEngine and the related classes/interfaces have been deprecated, see the javadocs for details.
Embedded Java API
See Deprecated list in Javadoc.
Graph Matching
The graph-matching component will be removed in future releases.
Windows scripts
The .bat files used to operate the database and tools on Windows are being phased out and will be removed in future releases, in favor of modern, equivalent PowerShell scripts. For more information, see Section 24.3, “Windows PowerShell module”.
