    if you created your plugin using org.bukkit or anything.bukkit in your namespace your plugins will no longer work

    please read

    for more information...i see ALLOT of plugins still using this and TODAY is DDay

    for plugin users, expect allot of plugins to stop working VERY soon, and the only option is for developers to change the way the write plugins.

    For the plugin developers who do not understand what this means, well, you can send me a private message and i will help you in changing what needs to be changed.

    It might draw more attention to the issue if you move the known affected plugins to a separate section.
    Name it 'Plugins that will break' or something~ :3

    To clarify the first post, you can use "bukkit" in your package names as long as it is not on the second level. For instance, I use "com.runicsystems.bukkit" and that is fine. See here.

    Rather bold statement there. Are you trying to get amateurs to quit?

    On a positive note, ALL of my plugins will work just fine. I switched over a while back.

    Due to the nature of our resources (official or not) pointing people in the wrong direction, I am going to postpone the sealing of the namespace to allow for an update of the wiki article, tutorials and/or as many plugins as possible.

    Auto reloader can be removed it has been updated by me =]

    You should ask samkio to put annotations on his yt tutorials and threads alerting to this package problem, because many users use them as reference to create plugins =)

    Probably a fair statement...I may have been a little on the grumpy side when i wrote that :)

    I am a little confused what do i need to change in my plugin?

    ok i changed pushblock to com.fripfrapps.komes.pushblock

    on my next update for redstone mech it will be changed.

    The previous version of my plugin was using java binary serializaition to store data. I have moved away from this in my newest yet to be released version, yet I have included these classes for migration purposes. These classes wont deserialize unless their namespace stays as com.bukkit... at least for another version where I can remove these deprecated classes and move forward sans-serialization . Does anyone know of some sort of workaround whereby I can force these classes to deserialize into classes with a different namespaces?

    Incidentally, I originally used the bukkit namespace as the tutorial thread said to:

    I'm sure this and the other threads from the resources section section of the forums is why the plugins use *.bukkit

    You could perhaps allow the use of *.bukkit.plugin.* for 3rd party plugins, or something?

    The problem is it would create security issues and no real way to know what is official bukkit plugins. It's really a simple change so I doubt they will make any exceptions

    A simple change that breaks all libraries and plugin dependencies. When I changed over, all 150 source files lit up red in eclipse... Fun times I tell you.

    I just used the refactor function to rename the package as a whole...

    That works inside your project, but it doesn't work outside of it. I have a project set up for each Minecart Mania plugin and there's like 5 of them.

    Oh, I'd use "sed" then.

    That's what I did. Still annoying.

    While I understand the technical reasons behind this, it's still annoying to first be told to use the example plugin as a reference and then be told two months later that everything you did was wrong. Like, thanks for the heads-up... :-/
