JRebirth Application Framework 7.7.0 is released

Hi everyone !

I’m pleased to inform you that we have released JRebirth 7.7.0.

The most important fact is that JRebirth releases are now synchronized with Maven Central repository.

Please note that Maven coordinates and base package have changed so you should prepare your migration as soon as possible according to your project constraints.

You can find the full release notes here : stable.jrebirth.org/releaseNotes.html
and the installation procedure here: stable.jrebirth.org/doc/Installation.html

Beware: Hottest Change with high impact

Please note that JRebirth Version Numbering has changed for this newer version.
This is the first version of the 7.x.y branch that will remain compatible with Java 7.

Two big changes have been made due to specific Maven Central Rules (you can read the OSS sonatype JIRA ticket OSSRH-8707 if you want to learn more about this decision.

I apologize for side effect that will occurred into your source code but all JRebirth artifacts have been relocated with newer Maven coordinate (groupId), so you must update your dependencies
Older Core dependency declaration:


Newer Core dependency declaration:


To keep an homogeneous library I have also refactored the package definition of all JRebirth Source Code in order to avoid having artifact groupId not synchronized with real Java package embedded.

So you must update all your java import declaration.
Older Java Import:

import org.jrebirth.core.application.DefaultApplication;

Newer Java Import:

import org.jrebirth.af.core.application.DefaultApplication;

You can use the “Organize Import” feature of your favorite IDE to resolve all newer classes location. But some interactive action could be required for some class name collision.

So you can use instead a custom regexp to update all reference to org.jrebirth.core to org.jrebirth.af.core.

Into Eclipse you can also add “default static import” to manage resources in a convenient way.

Type “create(” then do a  ctrl + space and the completion utility will import statically the class org.jrebirth.af.core.resource.Resources

I hope that new users can now play with JRebirth by just downloading it from Maven Central.

So let’s work on 7.7.1 future version !
