This new release includes new maven plugins that simplify POM files of cecilia libraries and cecilia applications and many bug fixes.
For details, see the attached changelog.
The 'cecilia-lib' module has been renamed to 'cecilia-baselib'
New maven packaging types have been added to ease the development of cecilia
component libraries and cecilia applications. Packages created by such modules
end with '.car' ("Cecilia ARchive"). Moreover when a module depends on another
cecilia module, the unpacking is handled automatically. The source organization
of cecilia modules has also been reviewed: ADL, IDL and C files are gathered
into a single 'src/main/cecilia' directory. (for details see
The maven-archetype-cecilia-app archetype has been renamed to
maven-archetype-cecilia-application and has been updated to create module with
the "cecilia-application" packaging type.
A new archetype "maven-archetype-cecilia-lib" has been added. Its creates a
module with the "cecilia-library" packaging type.
- Attribute controller: The size of each attribute has been added in the
internal structure managed by the attribute controller of primitive
components. This allows to set and get correctly attribute values whenever
their sizes (see bug #307540 for detail).
- The system properties that can be used to customize the execution of the test
of the 'cecilia-adl' module has been renamed to:
These properties can be specify from the maven command line (using -D).
The default value of the "cecilia.test.cFlags" now include the "-Werror'
flag. This means that gcc does not raise any warning during tests. This also
means that if for any reason, the generated code causes compilation warning,
this should be considered as a bug.
