Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-127) Move to a minimum of JDK 1.4
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2007 19:32:50 GMT


Stephen Colebourne commented on IO-127:

It would be ideal if part of the ant script could test 1.3 compatibility, but this all looks
good anyway.

>                 Key: IO-127
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons IO
>          Issue Type: Task
>            Reporter: Niall Pemberton
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 1.4
> There was a discussion a while back on moving Commons IO to a minimum JDK version of
1.4 - see [1] below. The majority view was this was a good idea. Jorg Schaible suggested[2]
that the compiler options be kept at JDK 1.3 so that, apart from new JDK 1.4 dependant features,
Commons IO would still operate under JDK 1.3. This seems like a good idea and resolves the
issue of whether this would require a major version change.
> There was also a view that we should move to JDK 1.5 instead - I have no issue with that,
but would advocate that theres no point in doing so until there are people wanting to commit
JDK 1.5 dependant features.
> This change is targeted at Commons IO 1.4 - and a Commons IO 1.3 branch has been created
for anyone still desiring future JDK 1.3 only releases.
