- The Byte Code Engineering Library (Apache Commons BCEL) is
intended to give users a convenient possibility to analyze, create,
and manipulate (binary) Java class files (those ending with
.class). Classes are represented by objects which contain all the
symbolic information of the given class: methods, fields and byte code
instructions, in particular.
Such objects can be read from an existing file, be transformed by a
program (e.g. a class loader at run-time) and dumped to a file
again. An even more interesting application is the creation of classes
from scratch at run-time. The Byte Code Engineering Library (BCEL) may
be also useful if you want to learn about the Java Virtual Machine
(JVM) and the format of Java .class files.
BCEL is already being used successfully in several projects such as
compilers, optimizers, obsfuscators and analysis tools, the most
popular probably being the Xalan XSLT processor at Apache.

Remove WWW entries moved into port Makefiles
Commit b7f05445c00f has added WWW entries to port Makefiles based on
WWW: lines in pkg-descr files.
This commit removes the WWW: lines of moved-over URLs from these

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles
It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.
Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.
There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.
