Subject [jira] Updated: (RIVER-316) RFC Library, Application & Class Versioning, Dynamically Mobile Codebases and Classloading enhancements
Date Sun, 02 Aug 2009 07:06:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RIVER-316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Peter Firmstone updated RIVER-316:

    Attachment: VersionedDynamicClassesRev5.tgz

Please go through the javadoc, check that I haven't missed anything.  I'll check the model
myself later, to make sure my latest thoughts are correctly recorded.

> Request for Comments:
> Proposal to add support for Dynamic Mobile Codebases and Application fine grained class
versioning as well as Coarse grained Library versioning , to enable River User devolopers,
to provide distinction between classes with the same fully qualified class name when code
differences created by refactoring packages or library updates break backward compatibility
between classes contained within that library or package.  ClassWorlds can be used to segregate
ClassRealms for application packages and different library versions.
> A dependency tree array object (contains dependency references between classes, fully
qualified class names are stored as String objects) returned by the new ClassDepend tool (replacement
of classdep functionality) may be suitable (with some modification) for recording class versioning,
for later navigation of the codebase for class version verification, perhaps this could be
stored in serialized form with the codebase.
> The ASM library might be used to modify existing, externally sourced library class file
bytecodes to add a LIBRARYVERSIONID static final field, with an accessor method, for library
code used in codebases, to mark the class files with the library release version.
> serialVersionUID (when it exists), along with the CLASSVERSION static field, might be
used to determine the dependency and backward compatibility of classes in a codebase, this
information could be stored in the dependency tree along with the CLASSVERSION, fully qualified
class name and class file checksum.
