Comment: Verify current version of ASM being used by stable and edge JRuby


  1. Should we use ASM jar as is (make the dependency public) or use re-rooted versions that cannot conflict?
    1. Scala: 2.10+ uses ASM 4.1, subsetted, and rerooted to
    2. Groovy: 2.1 (latest stable) uses ASM 4.0 external, 2.2 (next) uses ASM 4.1 external
    3. JRuby: 1.7.4 (latest stable) uses ASM 4.1 (I think)0, subsetted, and rerooted to According to Charles Nutter 1.7.x will stay on 4.0. As of Feb. 19, 2014 the version on master has been bumped to 4.2 as 5.0 is currently in beta.
    4. Recommend:  re  re-root to avoid conflicts
  2. What (if anything) needs to be done with computing stack frames to satisfy bytecode verification changes in JDK 7?
    If using a re-rooted version should that version be provided in a separate jar for separability in environments which do not need it?
    1. Recommend: 
  3. If re-rooted, should we subset the jar and only include what we use rather than the whole jar?
    1. Recommend: yes, as long as we're modifying we might as well subset
  4. If using a re-rooted jar, should we provide a split version of the re-rooted asm to allow it to be optional for environments that don't need it?
