Subject [jira] [Created] (BCEL-242) Remove Serializable, Clonable, hashCode, equals
Date Thu, 13 Aug 2015 02:05:45 GMT
Charles Honton created BCEL-242:

             Summary: Remove Serializable, Clonable, hashCode, equals
                 Key: BCEL-242
             Project: Commons BCEL
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Charles Honton

While we're in the midst of bringing BCEL up to date, can we remove the  unnecessary code.

It is unlikely that any application needs to serialize BCEL state and the class that BCEL
generates is already "serialized".  (And serializatoin is hard to get right)

It is unlikely that opcodes or instructions need to be compared, so equals/hashCode is excess.

Cloning is hard to get right and probably not necessary.
