Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-905) Switch to Java 1.7
Date Thu, 13 Dec 2012 23:38:12 GMT
Christopher Tubbs created ACCUMULO-905:
------------------------------------------

             Summary: Switch to Java 1.7
                 Key: ACCUMULO-905
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-905
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
            Assignee: Christopher Tubbs
             Fix For: 1.6.0


As 1.7 becomes the default Java in more and more operating systems, and security-related bugfixes
and other fixes in Java itself are targeted more towards newer versions, rather than maintaining
older versions, it would be prudent to switch to using 1.7 as our target platform.

This change would allow us to leverage some of the newer features of Java.

This change can be established at the beginning of the development cycle for Accumulo 1.6.0,
so that we can immediately begin taking advantage of the new Java features in 1.6.0 features
after 1.5.0 is released.
