Subject [configuration][ALL] compatibility issues with hsqldb
Date Sat, 03 Dec 2005 11:21:03 GMT
Hi all,

ATM I am facing a problem with hsqldb and JDK 1.3 compatibility and
would like to know if the same occurred for other components (and if
already a solution exists).

Commons Configuration contains a class DatabaseConfiguration whose test
class makes use of hsqldb. When trying to build the distros on JDK 1.3
(which is the minimum supported JDK, so the release should be built with
that) TestDatabaseConfiguration causes test failures: a class not found
exception for java.sql.SavePoint.

As I found out the cause for that is the hsqldb.jar distributed through
ibiblio, which was built for JDK 1.4 and later. Indeed I was able to
recompile hsqldb on JDK 1.3 and then the problem disappears.
Unfortunately there does not seem to be a JDK 1.3 compatible version of
a hsqldb.jar on the ibiblio maven reository (at least I did not find
one). So this makes the build process on a JDK 1.3 very hard because the
correct hsqldb.jar cannot be automatically downloaded.

Do other components have the same constellation (dependency to hsqldb
and minimum required JDK 1.3)? How is this handled there?
