Merge request template
Please make sure that this change is BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE and a new server will work correctly with clients using old APIs versions.
It may be that data sent in the new format will break the old clients.
In case of any potential incompatibility we have to inform our clients and schedule release & deployment with them.
@acc-logging-team - please have a look for approval.
NXCALS-6470 generates python stubs for Java classes that are called over py4j. When such a stub is used in an import statement, the Python interpreter imports and loads the corresponding Java class. This merge request provides the necessary functionality.
