Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6213) Deprecate support for Java 5 and CDC
Date Fri, 10 May 2013 19:25:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6213?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13654756#comment-13654756

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-6213:

Thanks for that feedback, Myrna.

Knut: I think I need to chunk in the pieces of derby-6213-06-aa-convertProductToJava6.diff
before we can start dividing up the product packages to remove the lint warnings. Unfortunately,
I'm hitting more speedbumps than I expected.

In the meantime, however, I think that a parallel effort could be started on the test classes:
first converting the test build to Java 6, then dividing up the test packages to remove lint

> The developer community has approved the proposal to sunset support for Java 5 and CDC:
> This issue tracks a number of tasks needed to implement this proposal:
> I) Remove build support for Java 5 and CDC.
> II) Purge user doc references to Java 5, CDC, and the JDBC 4 DataSources.
> III) Remove the JDBC 4 version of the public api from the published javadoc. The recently
introduced CP2 DataSources would need to migrate to the JDBC 3 version of the published javadoc.
The JDBC 4 versions of the DataSources would still exist, but they would be vacuous extensions
of their JDBC 3 counterparts.
> IV) On the wiki, document our expectation that maintenance releases will support the
same platforms as the original feature release cut from their branch.
> V) Decide what to do with the SimpleMobileApp. Probably we want to just remove this demo
since its purpose is to show how to run Derby on the deprecated CDC platform.
