Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-905) Switch to Java 1.7
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 18:30:12 GMT

John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-905:
-------------------------------------

Java 6 is public EOL this month. I'm wondering if we want to switch to it for 1.5 to keep
in line with an updated form of a java. At the very least, part of our testing this round
should revolve around java 7 as well, just to ensure proper functionality for users of it.
I think we should migrate to java 7 for 1.6 though.

> 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.
