Subject [jira] Commented: (SHALE-285) Test whether shale-tiger can be postprocessed for use on JDK 1.4 systems
Date Mon, 18 Sep 2006 12:13:31 GMT
    [ ] 
Craig McClanahan commented on SHALE-285:

At this point, the important thing is to verify whether the resulting code actually works
(the Tiger extensions rely on runtime analysis of annotations, so I'm very curious how the
"retro" converters actually handle this).  If it works, we'll want to ultimately use plugins
for both shale-tiger itself, and for any application that wants to use these annotations but
work on JDK 1.4.  A good test case would be the shale-sql-browser app.

In the short term, to do this kind of testing, a command line approach would be fine.

> Several Apache projects have started using postprocessors like RetroWeaver and RetroTranslater
to take code that uses Java SE 5 syntax and semantics (including annotations) and make it
work on a JDK 1.4 JVM.  Analyze whether this approach will work for shale-tiger (and applications
built with it), and (if so) decide whether to release it as a supported feature (or perhaps
as a sandbox feature).
