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 [1]. 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,
