|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Orbit Bundles To Be Removed From 2018-09 M3|
IMHO this means that Code Recommenders must withdraw from SimRel.
a) all SimRel contributions should use the latest Orbit version
b) mismatch of Guava has been a long-running nightmare with Guava classes in APIs a known no-no causing projects that integrate diverse Guava contributions to fail with bad classes.
Chasing evoluion is a pain but the whole point of SimRel is a suite of contributions that work together. Now that we release four times more often, this pain must be endured four times more often.

Hi Roland,I just wanted to give a heads-up that the following bundles (and corresponding source bundles) are expected to be removed from the Orbit build towards 2018-09, for M3 . com.google.guava 15.0.0, 18.0.0 (use 21.0.0)Code Recommenders still uses Guava 15 and can't switch without doing a major release, as Guava classes like ImmutableList and Optional are unfortunately part of our public API. Switching to a new major version of Guava would hence mean forcing all our clients to also switch, which may not be possible. A major release, possibly moving from Guava Optional to Java 8 Optional in our public APIs, would eliminate this problem for good, but we don't have the resources to do that for 2018-09. Best wishes, Andreas
