JSR 292: reject redefinitions if patched string becomes non-patched and vice versa

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      generic
    • OS:
      generic

      Description

      Pseudo-strings must remain pseudo-strings and strings remain strings after a class redefinition/retransformation.
      We need to put a check in place if the invariant is broken as the pseudo-string patches will be lost in such case.

      The suggestion is to reject such redefinitions and return a JVMTI error, something like:
        JVMTI_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_REDEFINITION_SCHEMA_CHANGED
        JVMTI_ERROR_INTERNAL
