|Re: [aspectj-users] Upgrade AspectJ Maven plugin to Java 11 (AspectJ 1.9.4)|
Hello Andy, Alexander:
Your posts strike me as quite serendipitous. I am a PhD student in Computer Science. Part of my research will involve modifications to the AspectJ compiler. My goal is to work in a Java 11 environment, so I just installed the latest eclipse, Java 11 SDK, and cloned AspectJ master. I am still working through “xyz cannot be resolved to a type” errors so maybe I’m not far along to hit this problem? I am new to Maven, but if I can help then point me in the right direction. That goes for any other tasks that need doing to get AspectJ to Java 11.
Honestly, I didn't expect an answer from you. AFAIK you are not a committer in that project, at least not according to GitHub. Also, I am not sure there is much to sort out (other than code review) because there is a PR already:
It contains the changed/forked "nickwongdev" version.
