>             Project: Commons BCEL
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Documentation
>    Affects Versions: 5.2

> At least two methods now declare checked exceptions that did not previously;
> there may be others:
> org.apache.bcel.generic.ObjectType.subclassOf(ObjectType)
> org.apache.bcel.generic.ReferenceType.getFirstCommonSuperclass(ReferenceType)
> --> Both now declare ClassNotFoundException
> This of course causes a compile-time error in existing code that does not
> provide (inadvertent) exception handling around these methods.
> Suggest revising release notes or remapping these exceptions to some type of
> RuntimeException.
