Guava is not a singleton bundle. You should be able to install version 11 along with version 10. This will not cause issues if the version ranges are properly restrained for the people that do depend on 10 so that they do not import the incompatible version 11 instead (i.e. they depend on [10.0.0,11.0.0) and not "10.0.0" which is translated by Eclipse as "10 and newer").
EMF Compare uses LoadingCache because that API is stable from 11 to 14. Cache and CacheBuilder, on the other hand, have been broken in 11:
- In version 11, most useful methods from "Cache" get deprecated and extracted to LoadingCache. one of CacheBuilder.build() is removed, thus broken.
- In version 12, the depreacted "Cache" method get removed (proper API break).
We use LoadingCache since that is what CacheBuilder returns, and we aim for compatibility. We use Guava 11 since the APIs we use are defined as "frozen" (tough still annotated @Beta) in that release.
FWI, it is one of the guys from Xtext that first asked us to switch to Guava 11 (see bug 401595 for information), so I believe the interaction should work.
