Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARIES-1844) Support for ASM 7 (Java 11)
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2018 09:38:00 GMT


Simone Bordet commented on ARIES-1844:

FYI this issue is now blocking other projects that are trying to support JDK 11 and OSGi with
`ServiceLoader` features.

Using ASM 7 won't break compatibility with Java 8.

I had a super-quick look at what it would take to move SPI Fly to be Java 11 compliant and
it's not much.

Requires to update all dependencies to newer versions, requires to update to ASM 7, requires
to drop Java 5 compatibility since the oldest platform that you can target now with Java 11
is Java 6, a bit of fiddling with OSGi manifests regarding the ASM version, a bit of code
changes to pass in `Opcodes.ASM7` to ASM's `ClassReader` when needed.

Let me know if you need assistance.

start to work with ServiceLoader behaviors.
