Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-4893) Allow Java 5 language constructs in build code
Date Sun, 07 Nov 2010 17:06:07 GMT
Allow Java 5 language constructs in build code

                 Key: DERBY-4893
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4893
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build tools
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Knut Anders Hatlen
            Assignee: Knut Anders Hatlen
            Priority: Minor

We already allow the use of methods and classes that only exist in Java 5 and higher in code
that only runs at build time, but java/build/org/apache/derbyBuild/build.xml specifies source
and target level "1.4", so we cannot use the new syntax introduced in Java 5. I think we should
also change source and target level to allow the new (well, not so new anymore...) language

(I noticed this when I started writing code to perform sanity checking of the message files
at build time (DERBY-4796) and couldn't use the simpler for loop syntax.)
