Subject Re: [privilizer] promotion plan
Date Thu, 29 Nov 2012 14:10:26 GMT
This components reminds me of Project Lombok [1]. As I understand the
approach is different, Lombok uses JavaC annotations to generate the
additional code at compile time, while Privilizer post process the class
files with Javassist and works at the bytecode level.

Lombok has a @DoPrivileged annotation, as well as many other ones
[2][3]. The one I find very useful is the @SwingInvokeLater annotation
[4] to ensure the code runs on the UI thread. That's a killer feature
when developing Swing applications.

Maybe the scope of [privilizer] could be widened to other annotations
post processing? I don't know if it's worth competing with Lombok though.
