Subject [jira] [Commented] (OPENJPA-2283) Upgrade to ASM 4 dependency
Date Thu, 10 Oct 2013 18:35:41 GMT


Mark Struberg commented on OPENJPA-2283:

Tell me where the difference is between having a direct dependency to a badly maintained version
of asm jars which are NOT binary compatible with each other vs having an Apache internal xbean-asm4-shaded
which we maintain over at the Geronimo project?
There is a good reason why OpenWebBeans, OpenEJB, a few other Apache projects plus Spring,
etc dropped the direct ASM dependency already...

> OpenJPA currently has a dependency on ASM 3.2 for some post-enhancement processing to
fix up the stack map tables (Java 7 requirement).  The latest release of ASM is 4.1, which
just came out last week.  The immediate need is to move up to ASM 4.0.  We can entertain 4.1
at a later date.
