Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIGESTER-158) Use Java6 annotation processing to generate RulesModule instances at compile-time
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2012 16:56:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIGESTER-158?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13205543#comment-13205543

Matt Benson commented on DIGESTER-158:
--------------------------------------

This was left as a problem:  Simo's initial implementation of this was done against Java 5
APT.  [digester] currently supports Java 5, but its CI systems (Continuum in particular) are
using a Java 6 installation.  To be forward-looking and use the Java 6 {{Processor}}, etc.
APIs, is it reasonable to say:

 - [digester]'s runtime code uses only Java 5 APIs
 - [digester] includes a Java 6 {{Processor}} that "precompiles" [digester] annotations into
configured {{RulesModule}}s.
 - [digester]'s build is configured with source 1.6, target 1.5

?

Is this a workable approach, or does the {{Processor}} stuff break down on the third point?
 If so, would it be simpler to convert [digester] to a multimodule project and provide the
precompilation {{Processor}} as an independent module that depends on 1.6 even though the
core does not?  I feel favorable towards this approach because it makes enabling the precompilation
a very explicit act, and gives the user the opportunity to exclude the {{Processor}} from
his runtime deployment.

Matt

P.S. the {{com.sun.codemodel}} code I mentioned before is in fact working now ;)
