Subject Re: supported java releases in current ctakes development and future releases (3.1 and later)

Just to tie back to this, it sounds like it's ok to use java 7 features.  Right?

Anything that works with ctakes using java 1.7 should work work with uima requiring at least
1.5 or 1.6.  I know I've been running 1.7 for about a year or so.

(The reason I'm asking is a coworker is making some changes and would like to use named capturing
groups in the java 7 regex support —  http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html#groupname
)

A couple of my other favorite java7 features that I've used on non-ctakes projects:

  *   multicatch: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/language/catch-multiple.html
  *   autoclosable resources (aka "try-with-resources"): http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/language/try-with-resources.html
  *   concurrency utility enhancements (aka "fork-join"):  http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/concurrency/changes7.html

good idea...
FYI:
Opened to track this:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CTAKES-197
Historically, Java has been pretty good about backwards compatibility, but I think we should
still test and verify (not just cTAKES, but our dependencies as well).
