In my case, I want to get findbugs  into Fedora, but current findbugs uses ASM 3.0, hence this thread. Permaine is working on getting the current jpackage.org asm2 package into Fedora, but there doesn't seem to be anyone working on ASM 3.0.I think it is just because nobody asked for it I guess... findbugs uses bcel in the JPP build. BTW, why not using bcel?The JPP build of findbugs is at version 0.9.6, before ASM support was added. The current version is 1.2.1. Building a current findbugs successfully will require one of the following: (1) Use the ASM jars that come with findbugs to build and either: (a) Install the ASM jars as part of the findbugs package until somebody complains; or (b) Don't install the ASM jars and somehow advertise that ASM support doesn't work so you'd better use BCEL (2) Patch findbugs to rip out all references to ASM. (3) Get ASM 3.0 into Fedora first. I think that (3) is the best option.
I totally agree. Let me start looking into the asm3 package. I have a release on Friday so this is not an easy week, but I will do my best.
I am also interested in a newer findbugs for JPP 5.0 as well, and may ask you for some help with that.
Yes. My worry is that with the current naming scheme, we will find ourselves making asm3 packages now, asm4 packages next year, asm5 packages after that, etc. I would think it would be better to have an asm-3.0 package now, and compat-asm-2.x versions if needed. However, that runs contrary to the jpackage naming scheme.It wil all depend on upstream projects upgrading from asm 1.x and 2.x I guess, of some of us patching them to use the newer version instead. I'd still say we add an asm3 to JPP and import it in here.Okay.Let me see if I can build asm3 But I stil wonder why not use bcel, which we already have?Answered above.BTW, have you looked at the findbugs package in JPP 5.0?Likewise.
