The method public static T getService(Module module, Class]]> serviceClass) has disappeared from the class ServiceManager in IDEA 8 OpenAPI. I copied the code from IDEA 7 API and got it working, but now I'm wondering whether the services API is going to become deprecated. We have a bunch of services defined as applicationService, projectService and moduleService in our plugin.xml. Those entries are always marked red in the plugin.xml but nevertheless they still seem to work. Is there some new way to define such kinds of components.
