@ObjectHolder going away in 1.13?


Recommended Posts

I was told that the @ObjectHolder annotation is going away in 1.13 due to Java’s internal reflection being changed from Java 8 to Java 9. I understand how this breaks a lot of code, but I don’t see how it makes it impossible to have the annotation. I think that the annotation is vital so that mods can override other mods items and blocks easily. It also provides support for adding and removing mods without restarting the game.


Edit: I’ve seen this post, and I understand how fields with objectholder might not be allowed to be final, but I don’t see why this would cause @ObjectHolder to be removed entirely.

This has nothing to do with security. Doing stuff like changing final (and especially static final) fields breaks the JVM or at least any optimizations it can do.

Well so far it's still present on forge's github in the 1.13 branch. And from what I can tell there are issues with gaining access to private things within a module that isn't "open" to reflection. So in theory they could still function just fine without the final modifier.

Worst case scenario we will have to replace them with a lazy getter that would querry the registry. Something like this. For example(not intended for actual use, just an example of how you can acheive similar functionality)

public static final Lazy<Block> TEST_BLOCK = Util.querry(new ResourceLocation(MODID, "test_block"), Block.class);


class Util
    private static final Map<Class<?>, IForgeRegistry<?>> regCache = Maps.newHashMap();
    public static <R extends IForgeRegistryEntry<R>, T extends IForgeRegistry<R>>T getCachedRegistry(Class<R> registryClass)
        if (!regCache.containsKey(registryClass))
            IForgeRegistry reg = GameRegistry.findRegistry(registryClass);
            if (reg == null)
                throw new IllegalArgumentException("Not a registry object!");
            regCache.put(registryClass, reg);

        return (T) regCache.get(registryClass);
    public static <T extends IForgeRegistryEntry<T>>Lazy<T> querry(ResourceLocation name, Class<T> registryClass)
        return new Lazy<T>(() -> getCachedRegistry(registryClass).getValue(name));
