+N.B. The Clirr report shows that there are several incompatible changes which in theory can
affect
+ projects that update to this version. However the changes are considered to be OK, because
they
+ apply to code that is not generally directly referenced externally.
+ For example, the Visitor interfaces have some new methods. These interfaces have lots of
methods,
+ so external code will use the provided abstract implementation instead.
+
+
+ Classes no longer implement Serializable.
+ It does not make sense to serialize BCEL, and it would be unlikely to work anyway.
+
+
+ The following classes no longer implement the Constants interface:
+ classfile.CodeException (final)
+ classfile.LocalVariable (final)
+ generic.InstructionFactory
+ verifier.statics.Pass2Verifier
+ verifier.structurals.UninitializedObjectType
+
+
+ The following classes no longer implement the InstructionConstants interface:
+ generic.PUSH
+
+
+ External code should not have been relying on such classes to provide definitions of the
constants.
