Subject Re: AW: Java version of Ivy/IvyDE
Date Mon, 02 Sep 2013 14:18:23 GMT
For Ivy we should stick to the same minimal JDK version as Ant. (JDK 1.5)

For IvyDE we could upgrade to the mimimal JDK version required for Eclipse. (JDK 1.6)


So: 

[ ] we should continue to support Java 1.4 
[X] we should make Ivy require Java 5 
[X] we should make IvyDE require Java 6

+1
Like [1] for Ant.

For Ant there wasn't a vote that I am aware of.
My last information is that Ant requires 1.5 [1], but there was a discussion [2] of moving
to 1.6.

[ ] we should continue to support Java 1.4 
[ ] we should make Ivy and IvyDE require Java 5 
[X] we should make Ivy and IvyDE require Java 6

As Jesse pointed out in [2] the actuals IDEs are requiring newer Java versions.
IvyDE is an IDE plugin so follow that.
For Ivy go the way as Ant wanted to go (but hasnt voted yet).
