Comment 1 Sven Gothel 2013-12-13 11:48:14 CET
A quick analysis reveals that the new annotation tool does not tolerate missing
dependencies of the processed java file anymore.

I.e. we run the annotation tool on a java file w/ dependencies
which are not yet generated and hence not resolvable in the classpath.

This has worked w/ Java7.
W/ Java6 and Java7, the annotation tool produced the new artifacts
despite the warning/error messages of unresolved symbols.
Then a later compilation process of ours produces the class files.

We will adapt to this behavioral change.
Comment 2 Sven Gothel 2014-05-11 03:10:38 CEST
Bug 923: Remove dependency of CStruct annotation processor _generation_ and generated_class_user due to Java8 issues.

Java8's annotation processor as embedded within javac does not allow
referencing not-yet existing generated classes in a class source code
which will produce these generated classes via the annotation process.


import com.jogamp.gluegen.structgen.CStruct;

public class Lala {
  @CStruct(name="RenderingConfig", header="TestStruct01.h")
  public RenderingConfig config;

Above example illustrates that the type 'RenderingConfig'
does not exist at time of processing the annotation.
The type will be created via the annotation process itself.

Even though we pass '-proc:only', i.e. skip java compilation,
Java8's annotation processing via javac fails in such case.

We see this as a bug within javac's annotation processing itself!


This workaround splits the annotation process and using the class as
generated by the former.

To allow this to work, CStruct receives a new field 'jname'
allowing to enforce the java-name of the structure
using a dummy field type like boolean.

  @CStruct(name="RenderingConfig", jname="RenderingConfig",
  public boolean dummy;

Further more CStruct can be annotated on the package, i.e. 'package-info.java',
avoiding the dependency problem altogether.
To support multiple header files and types,
'CStructs' has been introduced using an array of 'CStruct'.

  @CStructs({@CStruct(name="RenderingConfig", header="TestStruct01.h"),
             @CStruct(name="Pixel", header="TestStruct02.h")})
  package com.jogamp.gluegen.test.junit.structgen;

  - Build w/ Java7 and Java8
  - Validated 'major version 50' (Java 6) class files (OK)
