According to Anthony’s notes, 2.34 of JCF introduces the following changes,
- Compiled in Delphi 2007 using the latest version of JCL and JVCL
- Generics are now supported: imported and passed all of TridenT’s test cases for new syntax for generics.
- The settings tree is now built in code rather than in the .dfm. this was apparently causing problems building the programs in Delphi 6 and 7.
I am so familiar with JCF that I can add one more change here,
- -config switch cannot override registry key for the setting file.
How I found this? CBC relies on this switch to format Delphi source files by calling jcf.exe like this,
So when I got this error,
I knew my overridden trick failed.
Notice that the registry value for JCF setting file is out of date so should not be used by jcf.exe if I override by -config.
-config is not a documented command line parameter in the JCF Help file so I know one day Anthony might change the trick but I don’t know it comes this soon.
I do send a message to Anthony. I will update GrapeVine when I get his reply.
(Update on Feb. 7th.:
this issue is resolved in SVN source code right now and the next release of JCF should contain this patch.)
