Subject [GitHub] commons-bcel pull request: Use InstructionHandle as target instead...
Date Tue, 25 Aug 2015 05:23:27 GMT
GitHub user chonton opened a pull request:


    Use InstructionHandle as target instead of Instruction

    The programming model for BCEL instructions is confused.  Although not explicitly documented,
the InstructionList is read/written in the 'byte code' model and manipulated in the 'generic'
(or perhaps more accurately 'symbolic') model.  The program should edit using InstructionHandles
rather than Instruction; except that currently, setTarget uses an Instruction, not an InstructionHandle.
    Also, there is an attempt to reuse Instructions and InstructionHandles.  I'm pretty sure
this is mostly a bad idea.  An InstructionHandle should exist only once in an InstructionList
and should only belong to a single InstructionList.  An Immutable Instruction may be held
by multiple InstructionHandles.  The Immutable Instructions should probably be tagged with
an interface, etc.
    Since these changes could be considered radical, I created this pull request rather than
directly committing to svn.  I request that our beta users give this branch and report any
major concerns.
