Eclipse Object Teams 2.5.0

Primary tabs

New Weaver

The Neon release (2.5.0) of Object Teams will be shipped with the new byte code weaver OTDRE (Object Teams Dynamic Runtime Environment) in production quality. This adds the following functionality:

  • Team and role classes can be dynamically added to a running application, the necessary weaving can be performed even on classes that have already been loaded into the JVM. This provides the ultimate flexibility for unanticipated adaptation.
  • Weaving is fully capable of handling Java 8 bytecode. Workarounds applied in the previous weaver are no longer needed.

Additionally, the previous weaver OTRE (Object Teams Runtime Environment) will be updated (time permitting) to also handle Java 8 bytecode, as to provide both weavers with quite different characteristics as options.

Support for Java 9 will be merged from JDT (and adjusted for OT/J) when it is available. (not applicable as of Neon)
