Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3989) Set the Java 5 compilation path based on the Java 6 compilation path if a Java 5 environment can't be found but a Java 6 environment can be

Kristian Waagan commented on DERBY-3989:
----------------------------------------

Doing some investigative work on a Mac, I'm hitting this issue again. I'm also able to trigger
the issue using Sun JDKs.
I believe the problem is easy to fix once we have determined that we actually do want to support
this configuration:
 - invoke ant with a 1.5 JDK
 - a 1.6 JDK is available on the system (and automatically detected), but not used for compilation

We do get a version mismatch (class version 50 instead of 49) if we include the 1.6 libraries
on the compile classpath used by the 1.5 compiler.
The way I see it, we have two options;
 a) Allow this configuration, JDBC 4 will be built using the JDBC 4 stubs.
 b) Disallow this configuration, abort build notifying the user that he/she should switch
to a 1.6 compiler.

> This will make the build even more flexible. Probably involves the following changes:
> 1) Relaxing the requirement in PropertySetter that a Java 5 JDK must exist
> 2) Having PropertySetter look for a Java 6 JDK (and set java16compile.classpath accordingly)
just as PropertySetter looks for a Java 5 JDK today
> 3) Changing the setCompilerProperties target in the master build script so that it
>   a) requires that java15compile.classpath or java16compile.classpath is set (it's ok
for both to be set)
>   b) sets java15compile.classpath to ${jdbc3stubs}:${java16compile.classpath}
