Subject RE: [jira] Assigned: (HARMONY-376) [classlib][luni] Generics uplift for java.lang.String and java.util.Comparator
Date Thu, 20 Apr 2006 03:16:07 GMT
I posted another patch to fix the compile error in CompositeName, but is
that the right thing to do? When I compiled the code against a RI Java 5 JRE
library it still failed to compile in this scenario.

The String class used to have two compareTo methods, but now it only has
one, which seems like a non-passive change. This is a binary compatibility
issue vs. a source compatibility issue? If this was compiled against the
Java 1.4 libraries, it would still be binary compatible at runtime with a
Java 5 library, but once the code is compile using Java 5 source, it's no
longer compatible.
