Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (RAT-220) JDK version 1.6
Date Sun, 11 Sep 2016 18:40:09 GMT
Hi!

I tried bringing up this issue more than once, thus I was very happy
that somebody else feels the same.

In 0.12 we had a contribution that added a Gradle plugin. It failed due
to insufficient dependencies with JDK5.

Thus there's a need to update .... if we want to stay relevant.

If we are happy with some rather old users with Ant and JD5 - ok,
but to my mind we should add Gradle support to stay relevant in the ASF
sphere.

Just my 2 ct
Phil

>> Currently the RAT project defines as Java compatibility 1.5 but Tentacles defines
1.6 and Whiskers as well 1.6 so it would be a good idea to go to 1.6 as minimum....If someone
needs to work with 1.5 toolchain can be used.
