Byteman 4.0.18 has been released

 

Byteman 4.0.18 is now available from the Byteman downloads page and from the Maven Central repository. It is the latest update release for use on all JDK9+ runtimes up to and including JDK18.

 
Byteman 4.0.18 is a maintenance release which provides one enhancement, enabling the choice of TARGET vs TRIGGER semantics when rules inject down class or interface hierarchies. For rules of this type it is possible that the TARGET class/interface for the rule, the one named in the CLASS clause, may differ from the TRIGGER class, the subclass or interface implementation into which the rule actually gets injected. An AS TARGET clause in the rule body requests that the rule is typed lexically using TARGET class as the type for $this/$0. An AS TRIGGER clause means it is typed dynamically using the TRIGGER class as the type for $this/$0. Note that up to now Byteman has always used TRIGGER semantics and will continue to use this as the default. More details are provided in the Release Notes and the latest Byteman Programmers Guide.

 Byteman 4.0.16 is now available from the Byteman downloads page and from the Maven Central repository. It is the latest update release for use on all JDK9+ runtimes up to and including JDK17.

 
Byteman 4.0.16 removes the JBoss Modules plugin from the release, in the process removing a dependency on the jboss-modules jar. The plugin has never been fully functional on JDK9+ releases.
