Subject Binary incompatible changes to framework-only code
Date Mon, 13 Feb 2017 13:17:15 GMT
Recently in UIMA-5274 I changed the return value of the static method
UimaContextHolder.setContext(UimaContext uimaContext) from void to
UimaContext (so it could return the previous value).  Although this doesn't
cause any compile problems it does break binary compatibility at the
byte-code level.  But this call is intended only for framework use (to set
the context before calling user code) ... user code should only use the
getContext method.  Existing user code should not be using this method, so
is this change a concern?
