Subject [jira] [Commented] (BCEL-242) Remove Serializable, Clonable, hashCode, equals
Date Thu, 13 Aug 2015 09:43:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BCEL-242?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14694961#comment-14694961

Sebb commented on BCEL-242:
---------------------------

I agree that supporting serialisation seems completely unnecessary.

Cloning is also probably unnecessary; if we can make most classes immutable then they don't
need cloning anyway.

> 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.
