Re: Use of ModifierType fails if TypeDefinitionCategory is not loaded before

Cyclical dependency is not the right term. Static part of both class refers static member of the other.
Anyway, I use your pom.xml and I reproduce the problem with Oracle java 8 (maybe it depends on the order of class load):
$ cat src/main/java/JGModifierTypeIssue.java 
import org.janusgraph.graphdb.database.management.ModifierType;

public class JGModifierTypeIssue {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println(ModifierType.CONSISTENCY);
    }
}
$ mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="JGModifierTypeIssue"

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for asking on the user group first. I cannot reproduce the issue (works fine on my system using java8).

I ran:
    mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="JGModifierTypeIssue"

and get CONSISTENCY printed whether the TypeDefinitionCategory line is commented out or not.
I used the pom.xml file below.
Also, java does not have the concept of cyclical dependencies (as in python): an import causes a class load unless the class is already loaded.

Hi,

When I try to set consistency of a property key (using JanusGraphManagement.setConsistency in a java project) I get a NPE if I don't refer the class TypeDefinitionCategory before.

The method setConsistency uses ModifierType and there is a cyclic dependency between  ModifierType  and TypeDefinitionCategory.

You can reproduce the error with this minimalist java code:
import org.janusgraph.graphdb.database.management.ModifierType;
import org.janusgraph.graphdb.types.TypeDefinitionCategory;

public class JGModifierTypeIssue {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    TypeDefinitionCategory dummy = TypeDefinitionCategory.BACKING_INDEX
    // without the following line the next line generates a NPE
    System.out.println(ModifierType.CONSISTENCY);
  }
}

Should I create an issue on Github ?

Toom.
