      Description

      See JENKINS-65988. Jenkins core is using Guava 11.0.1, which was released on January 9, 2012. Jenkins core would like to upgrade to Guava 30.1.1, which was released on March 19, 2021. Plugins must be prepared to be compatible with both Guava 11.0.1 and Guava 30.1.1 in advance of this core transition.

      Iterators#emptyIterator

      In particular, this plugin has been identified as using the com.google.common.collect.Iterators#emptyIterator method, which existed in Guava 11.0.1 but was removed in later versions.

      To facilitate the Jenkins core transition, this plugin must be prepared and released such that it works with both Guava 11.0.1 and latest. The general recommendation is to migrate away from Iterators#emptyIterator and rewrite the code to use org.apache.commons.collections.iterators.EmptyIterator from Apache Commons Collections 3.2.2, which is bundled in Jenkins core already.

      Guava's cache

      In particular, this plugin has been identified as using the com.google.common.cache.Cache API, from which some methods have been removed between Guava 11.0.1 and latest.

      To facilitate the Jenkins core transition, this plugin must be prepared and released such that it works with both Guava 11.0.1 and latest. The recommendation is for plugins to migrate from Guava's cache to Caffeine via the Jenkins Caffeine API plugin.

      For the most part, the migration is a trivial matter of replacing imports of com.google.common.cache.Cache with imports of com.github.benmanes.caffeine.cache.Cache and imports of com.google.common.cache.CacheBuilder with imports of com.github.benmanes.caffeine.cache.Caffeine. For examples of how to do this, see these existing PRs:
