scalajs-fake-weakreferences provides compatibility stubs for
java.lang.ref.* APIs in Scala.js. It preserves the support that was available in Scala.js core previous to v1.6.0.
References provided by
scalajs-fake-weakreferences do not behave correctly. They always act as strong references.
scalajs-fake-weakreferences should only be used if upgrading to Scala.js v1.6.0+ causes linking errors about
java.lang.ref.* in an existing application. New applications should avoid this library.
Add the following dependency to your project settings:
libraryDependencies += "org.scala-js" %%% "scalajs-fake-weakreferences" % "1.0.0"
When using a
crossProject, add the above in
You can then use the classes defined in
java.lang.ref.*. Keep in mind that they will hold strong references, which will prevent the target objects from beging garbage-collected.
