Subject Re: [VFS] Update VFS trunk to Java 6
Date Fri, 15 Jun 2012 14:46:59 GMT
(posting from nabble as I've lost the thread in my inbox)

I want to revive using Java 6 this for trunk. Java 5 is dead, no only is
forcing projects to update to the trunk stream from VFS 2.0. 

In addition to the list below:

- Make VFS more attractive for new user/developers, new committers in the
21st century. No one can force anyone to upgrade to the next version.
- Keep VFS relevant. The older versions are still there for volunteers to
patch.
- Open the door for newer versions of jars that required Java 6, like
commons-io 2.3.

*I want to use Java 6 @Override on more methods which I find extremely
helpful.*

Thank you,
Gary

This has been backed out of SVN for now.

(from the JIRA:)

Whys:
- Make VFS more attractive for new user/developers, new committers in the
21st century. No one can force anyone to upgrade to the next version.
- Keep VFS relevant. The older versions are still there for volunteers to
patch.
- Open the door for newer versions of jars that required Java 6, like
commons-io 2.3.
