Release BCEL 6.1?

Andreas Sewe
Hi,

would it be possible to release a new version of BCEL? The last release
(6.0) was over a year ago (in July 2016 [1]).

As a committer to the SpotBugs project (the successor of FindBugs), I
would like to see BCEL 6.1 out in the near future [2], as we suffer from
bug BCEL-284 [3]. Unfortunately, our last request for a BCEL 6.1 release
wasn't heard [4] and we are now considering forking BCEL [5] -- which I
consider to be a measure of last resort.

Thus, it would be great if we could see an official BCEL 6.1 release.

If you need any assistance or additional testing, I'd be happy to help out.

Best wishes,

Andreas

I’ll have a look into this and come back to you. Probably on Sunday since I’ll be on the train then and will have some time.

Cheers,

I’m going through the patches pointed out by Mark Roberts [1].
Further more there are some breaking chances, and I need to find out how to handle them [2].

Cheers,
Benedikt

Hi Benedikt,

I may be too late for 6.1., but I just reallized that my patch & test in
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BCEL-267 has never received an answer.

Would you mind having a quick look?

thanks,
Stephan

Hi Benedikt,

> I’ll have a look on my next cycle.

is there anything I can do to help?

We at SpotBugs are holding our breath [1] for an official BCEL 6.1.0
release, which we would like to include in our own upcoming 3.1.0
release -- rather than including a self-built BCEL 6.1.0 snapshot.

Best wishes,

Andreas

No, not really. There where some discussions on the ML regarding breaking changes. I’m not sure we reached consensus there. I’ll probably go an push out RC1 to see how people feel about the breaking changes. Would be nice, I you could share your thoughts about that too.

Sorry, I’m doing this on my spare time and I had some busy weeks lately. I’ll try to get to it this weekend.

Benedikt

pushing out an RC1 first is a good idea (does "pushing out" include
deploying to Maven Central?). As SpotBugs uses BCEL quite heavily, this
would give us the opportunity to report any breakage early.

No problem. I'm also just a weekend committer to SpotBugs, so we are in
the same boat.

Best wishes,

Andreas

No, only formal releases go to MC...

... However the RC will be available at a public URL for devs to test.

The URL is not published to the general public.
If you join the dev list you can help to test the RC from the info in
the RC VOTE.

CI builds are also normally available via the ASF snapshot repo.
Ask on the dev list if you cannot find them.
