Subject Re: [VOTE] JDK 1.7 - Switch for Accumulo 1.6.0
Date Mon, 03 Jun 2013 21:04:39 GMT
Can you clarify what you mean?

- I would be ok with making JDK 1.7 the "default" for Accumulo 1.6.0. I 
think this mostly boils down to the JDK which we would be performing our 
testing with.
- I don't want to alienate JDK/JRE 1.6 users from using Accumulo 1.6.0, 
so I am not in favor of removing the ability to run Accumulo 1.6.0 on 
JRE 1.6.

I think the latter is acceptable to me as long as we document/advertise 
how one could build Java 1.6 Accumulo 1.6.0 artifacts, if we choose not 
to publish them ourselves.

Also, some quick searching leads me to believe that 1.6 bytecode will 
run on a 1.7 JVM, but not vice versa. Does anyone know if this is the 
case? I apologize if I'm bringing up an already-discussed subject.
