Support for Java 6 class file format

Yanic Inghelbrecht Newbie

Hi Chiba,

What's the 'official' stand on support for the Java 6 class file format?

I'm running into issues when instrumenting Java 6 class files (format 50), even though my code works fine when the code-to-be-instrumented is recompiled for Java 5 (format=49).

Since I'm using javassist in a development tool, recompiling is generally not an option for me or my users.

If the Java 6 format is not supported
- are there any plans to support it in the near future?
- is there anything I can do to convert it at load-time before the instrumentation starts (I noticed ClassFile#setVersionToJava5)?

Best regards,
Yanic
