The <code> tag won’t be going away any time soon, but in many cases there are other ways to do what this tag does, using the built-in dynamic options (in particular, currently for tab-delimited files), that are much preferred. So it is deprecated, and it should be used sparingly, but there are times when there isn’t a better way for tools to dynamically build their options without using a code file.
In the case of the get microbial data tool, if it was working prior to 15.03, it should still be working, afaik we haven’t changed the handling of these recently (with the exception of not loading them inside of a ToolShed application instance). Its been a while since I’ve played with that specific tool (and we deprecated it ourselves and removed it from main), so I can’t confirm off-the-cuff whether it should still be working or not. If something really did break with respect to the code files, we should take a look though. I think using a Data Library is the perfect replacement for for the microbial import tool, and would cause less file duplication when used. But what exactly is no longer working?
