Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-5984) Derby 10.8 branch does not build out-of-the-box using Oracle's Java 7 JDK on Mac OSX.

Rick Hillegas created DERBY-5984:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Derby 10.8 branch does not build out-of-the-box using Oracle's Java
7 JDK on Mac OSX.
                 Key: DERBY-5984
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5984
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Build tools
    Affects Versions: 10.8.2.2, 10.8.1.2, 10.8.3.0
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas


If I try to build the 10.8 branch using Oracle's Java 7 for Mac OSX, the build fails as follows:

[setJdkProperties] Unrecognized VM vendor: 'Oracle Corporation'
[setJdkProperties] An attempt to configure the required JDKs will be made, but the build may
fail.
[setJdkProperties] In case of problems:
[setJdkProperties]   - consult BUILDING.html and set the required properties manually
[setJdkProperties]   - set the property printCompilerProperties to true and ask the Derby
development community for help
[setJdkProperties]     (please provide the debug output from running ant)

BUILD FAILED
/Users/rh161140/derby/branches/10.8/build.xml:241: Don't know how to set java15compile.classpath,
java16compile.classpath using this environment:

java.vendor = Oracle Corporation
java.home = /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_09.jdk/Contents/Home/jre
java.version = 1.7.0_09
os.name = Mac OS X
j14lib = null
j15lib = null
j16lib = null
jdkSearchPath = /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_09.jdk/Contents

Please consult BUILDING.html for instructions on how to set the compiler-classpath properties.

Total time: 1 second


The following facts about this branch do not seem to me to be consistent:

1) The release notes for 10.8.1, 10.8.2, and 10.8.3 state that JDBC 4.1 is a supported JDBC
level, which implies support for Java 7.

2) The release notes for all 3 releases also state that Java SE versions are supported from
1.4 on up. Since 10.8.2 and 10.8.3 were released after Java 7 went live, this implies that
those releases support Java 7.

3) But you can't build the source distribution of 10.8.3 using Java 7 on a major platform.

I don't think that 10.8.3 is worse than 10.8.2 in this regard so I would not flunk the 10.8.3
candidate for this defect. However, we should try to fix this problem in case we need to build
another 10.8 release candidate.
