Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1079) Build javadoc under jdk 1.6
Date Thu, 16 Mar 2006 21:56:11 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1079?page=comments#action_12370758 ] 

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-1079:

Some new DataSource implementations (which satisify the JDBC4 DataSource contract) would turn
up in the published api. This is the crux of the javadoc problem: A single class can't satisfy
both the JDBC3 and JDBC4 DataSource contracts, so we need two sets of public DataSource implementations.
It makes sense to me that we should publish a single javadoc, containing both sets. This unified
javadoc would describe the whole public api in our jar files.

>          URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1079

>      Fix For:

> We would like to build the javadoc under 1.6 so that all of the classes (including the
JDBC 3 and JDBC 4 support) end up in the same directory tree. This is particularly important
for the published API which we expose to end-users.
> Right now you can do the following:
> 1) Build the whole codeline using the 1.4 compiler for most classes and the 1.6 compiler
for the JDBC4 support.
> 2) Build javadoc in a 1.4 environment (with JAVA_HOME set to 1.4). This runs step (1)
if it has not already happened. This javadoc excludes the JDBC4 support because generics-laden
JDBC4 signatures choke the 1.4 compiler.
> 3) Build the javadoc in a 1.6 environment (with JAVA_HOME set to 1.6). This will fail
if you have not run step (1); this is because you can't build Derby in a 1.6 environment yet.
This also generates a number of warnings because the 1.6 javadoc tool objects to code generated
by the JAVACC grammar tool; JAVACC turns out code with loop variables distastefully named
"enum". In addition, today, the 1.6 javadoc excludes the JDBC4 support.
> We would like to end up with the following situation:
> a) If your ant.properties points at a 1.6 installation, then the javadoc targets will
use the 1.6 javadoc tool and will include Derby's JDBC4 support. This will work regardless
of whether you have already built the class tree. If you have not already built the class
tree, then we will compile it under scenario (1) above.
> b) If, however, your ant.properties does not point at a 1.6 installation, then the javadocs
target will continue to use the 1.4 javadoc tool to build only the classes built today. The
JDBC4 support will be excluded from this javadoc.
> c) As part of releasing 10.2, we will build the javadoc under scenario (a).
> d) Once 1.6 exits beta and becomes a production vm, the community can debate when we
want to fix DERBY-1078 and require 1.6 in the build environment.
