Subject [jira] [Updated] (GROOVY-8126) Inadvertent source code incompatibility in Groovy 2.4.7 release
Date Tue, 21 Mar 2017 03:03:42 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-8126?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Paul King updated GROOVY-8126:
------------------------------
    Description: 
I just spotted a change in 2.4.7 that inadvertently broke source code/contract compatibility.
After 1 year it seems just as dangerous to revert as to leave. So I am creating this Jira
to note the change and suggest a workaround. We'll change this issue if a better solution
is found.

https://github.com/apache/groovy/commit/78b6cc54af85988829ecd6120b69f65e0d9a8ade
{noformat}
src/main/groovy/lang/GroovyCodeSource.java
-    public GroovyCodeSource(URL url) throws IOException {
+    public GroovyCodeSource(URL url) {
{noformat}
Suggested workarounds.
# If you are upgrading and are going to now only use Groovy 2.4.7 and above, just delete any
catch statements catching IOException.
# If you have code that needs to work with old and new versions of Groovy and are checking
for the IOException, change it to just Exception and check for IOException using instanceof
if needed.
