Subject [jira] [Commented] (BCEL-173) ClassParser fails to parse JDK classes in Java 8: ClassFormatException: Invalid byte tag in constant pool
Date Tue, 05 May 2015 09:17:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BCEL-173?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14528160#comment-14528160
] 

Jon Freedman commented on BCEL-173:
-----------------------------------

Java 7 is now in end-of-life & no-longer recommended for production use.  If there is
no 6.0 relesae forthcoming I see no alternative but to find replacements for any libraries
dependent on BCEL.  I don't know how up to date your "Used by" link is but if it's not possible
to get a build out within the next month or so I don't see much future for the project.
