Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3608) Restore backwards binary compatibility with version 1.6.z
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2015 19:22:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3608?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14494704#comment-14494704

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-3608:
---------------------------------------------

Oh, umm, I don't recall having a good reason for doing that. I was probably just following
a habit of ensuring that the method only declares what it was actually throwing. If there's
any risk of it being an issue, I'd lean towards reverting that part of the change.

> We need to ensure that a check for binary backwards compatibility passes when comparing
1.6.z to current master, since it is only a minor version bump.

> That means new classes, interfaces,methods, enum members, etc are all fine. All of the
things labelled as HIGH severity in the binary compatibility report are definitely a problem.
They're mostly classes and methods that were removed.
> The end goal should be a report like the one Corey got for 1.6.1 -> 1.6.2. We don't
need the reciprocal report to be compatible because minor versions need not be forward compatible.
> Problems in the source compatibility report are worth reviewing, but things that only
show up there shouldn't be a blocker.

> There are instructions for running the compatibility checker in test/compat/japi-compliance/README
