Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-794) SystemUtils.IS_OS_WINDOWS_2008, VISTA are incorrect
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2012 06:21:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-794?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13453763#comment-13453763

Henri Yandell commented on LANG-794:
------------------------------------

Wondering why we mess with the version. http://www.milesdennis.com/2010/05/detecting-which-os-is-running-in-java.html
seems to imply that osName matches nicely on Windows to the properties we want to set.

>    Affects Versions: 3.1
>         Environment: Windows Server 2008 R2, Rackspace Cloud Instance

> On Windows Server 2008 R2 (a Rackspace Cloud Instance), the values of SystemUtils.IS_OS_WINDOWS_2008
and SystemUtils.IS_OS_WINDOWS_VISTA are incorrect: the former is false and the latter is true.
> I'm not sure how to fix the VISTA flag (as I don't have an instance to test against),
but the cause of WINDOWS_2008 being set to false is that the match explicitly requires the
version to be 6.1, where 6.0 can apparently also be the version number for 2008 R2.
