Subject Tomcat 7.0.29 vs. Groovy with Java 7
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2012 16:09:49 GMT
It appears that when one installs the groovy-all-2.0.1-indy.jar in a 
Tomcat web app, BCEL chokes on the Java 7 specific byte-code therein ala

    org.apache.tomcat.util.bcel.classfile.ClassFormatException: Invalid byte tag in constant
pool: 15
    	at org.apache.tomcat.util.bcel.classfile.Constant.readConstant(
    	at org.apache.tomcat.util.bcel.classfile.ConstantPool.<init>(
    	at org.apache.tomcat.util.bcel.classfile.ClassParser.readConstantPool(
    	at org.apache.tomcat.util.bcel.classfile.ClassParser.parse(
    	at org.apache.catalina.startup.ContextConfig.processAnnotationsStream(

Is there an update planned to make org.apache.tomcat.util.bcel savvy to 
Java 7 or replace it with ASM (which is fully Java 7 savvy)? [Please!]

Until then, can I completely exclude this jar from annotation scanning?
