The latest releases of Sonatype/Sisu are actually runtime wrappers that translate and delegate calls to their Eclipse/Sisu dependencies:



This enables you to migrate gradually to the new API by mixing new components and libraries with those written against the old API.

Change imports

Once you have upgraded to Sonatype/Sisu 2.5.x you can start migrating to the new API. In most cases this just involves changing imports:

Old package New package
org.sonatype.inject org.eclipse.sisu
org.sonatype.guice.bean.binders org.eclipse.sisu.wire
org.sonatype.guice.bean.containers org.eclipse.sisu.launch
org.sonatype.guice.bean.converters org.eclipse.sisu.wire
org.sonatype.guice.bean.inject org.eclipse.sisu.bean
org.sonatype.guice.bean.locators org.eclipse.sisu.inject
org.sonatype.guice.bean.locators.spi org.eclipse.sisu.inject
org.sonatype.guice.bean.reflect org.eclipse.sisu.inject
org.sonatype.guice.plexus.annotations org.eclipse.sisu.plexus
org.sonatype.guice.plexus.binders org.eclipse.sisu.plexus
org.sonatype.guice.plexus.config org.eclipse.sisu.plexus
org.sonatype.guice.plexus.converters org.eclipse.sisu.plexus
org.sonatype.guice.plexus.lifecycles org.eclipse.sisu.plexus
org.sonatype.guice.plexus.locators org.eclipse.sisu.plexus
org.sonatype.guice.plexus.scanners org.eclipse.sisu.plexus
org.sonatype.guice.plexus.shim org.eclipse.sisu.plexus

All the old types have been marked as deprecated to help identify which components you need to upgrade.

Check bindings

After upgrading and changing imports the last migration step is to see if your app works as expected when you swap the legacy Sisu wrapper with Eclipse/Sisu:

      | Guice is now a provided dependency of Eclipse/Sisu to make it easier to
      | switch in other variants (classic vs no-AOP) without needing exclusions



If you find that some components are missing at runtime, it could be that you are relying on a library that still requires the old Sonatype/Sisu API. To confirm this turn on trace logging for Sisu; you can either use the sisu.debug system property to send Sisu trace logging to the console, or alternatively set the logging level for the 'Sisu' logger to trace. Any components that couldn't be loaded at runtime because of missing types will be logged under "Problem scanning...".
