Conway's law

I guess the Conway's law is one of the most important ones in software development:
"Any organization that designs a system (defined broadly) will produce a design whose structure is a copy of the organization's communication structure."

JBBP 1.3.0

Java Binary Block Parser 1.3.0 is out and accessible in the Maven Central. The Main feature of the version - to generate Java class sources from JBBP scripts, the feature allows to use the framework for more or less high-load systems. The Library still has size less than 200 kBt but since the version it needs Java 1.6+ (minimal Android version is still 2.0). Also there are published two plugins for Maven and Gradle which allow to generate Java classes from JBBP scripts on fly during project build phase.
Also of course minor refactoring and bugfixing.
The Library is used by Orange for its Datavenue Live Objects service

JCP 6.1.1 is out

New version of Java Comment Preprocessor 6.1.1 is out. In the New Version mainly improved maven options and improved some text functions to make it more compatible with GoLang.
Now it is possible preprocess GoLang and it is possible to load a binary file and represent it as a byte array through just only line command (see example)
var imageArray = []uint8{/*$binfile("./image.png","uint8[]")$*/}
