Description Stanislav Aubrecht 2013-05-16 08:16:44 UTC
I'm planning to upgrade the JNA library to version 3.5.2 in NetBeans 7.4
The current version is 3.2.7

If there's any reason NOT to upgrade, please state it here.

The change log is available here: https://github.com/twall/jna/blob/master/CHANGES.md
Comment 1 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2013-05-16 15:11:32 UTC
CC-ed QE and other teams. There is a bunch of areas depending on JNA and after the upgrade, they should all be checked.

- window system effects (floating window transparency, dragged window shape)
- file systems - native listening for file changes
- keyring impl
- embedded browser
- subversion support (svnkit, but fallbacks to JNI if needed)
- python shell
- external execution
- kill a tree of processes
- native process execution
- jruby
- CND's usecases

Marian, and others, are you OK with the JNA version upgrade at this stage of 7.4?
Comment 2 Marian Mirilovic 2013-05-16 15:17:36 UTC
we are fine with that, thanks for notification
Comment 3 Stanislav Aubrecht 2013-05-17 08:34:29 UTC
It seems that are some incompatible changes in the latest version of JNA. I'm getting this exception on MS Windows:

Because of the incompatible changes we'll postpone the upgrade after the 7.4 release.

Sorry to bother, but is this change already on the latest builds? I'm in need of the JNA with this version.

Thank you.

It has been postponed due to licensing issues so it's not going to be included in NetBeans 8.0

But if you just need new JNA binaries you can replace them manually - if you keep the naming schema the same.

Could you clarify "licensing issues"? If it's the issue I'm aware of then *not* doing upgrade might be more of an issue?
