Assert keyword not supported

Reported by: hauma Owned by: moschny

Component: gjc Version: 1.07h
Severity: normal Keywords:


Java 1.4 adds an assert keyword to the language. This new keyword should be accepted by the compiler. Otherwise, existing code cannot be used easily.

  • Status changed from new to assigned

It should be relatively easy to fix the compiler to accept code with the assert keyword, however, it will be completely ignored then.

True assert support will not be there very soon.

As described in

the Java compiler does a relatively trivial transformation to wrap assert statements into if clauses guarded by a static final boolean variable that decides whether assertions are turned on or off.
