Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6287) Don't use reflection to call Java 6 methods in FileUtil
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2014 05:30:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6287?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14211854#comment-14211854

Mamta A. Satoor commented on DERBY-6287:
----------------------------------------

I am looking into backporting this to 10.10 because DERBY-6503 has been identified as a candidate
for 10.10 backport but the changes for DERBY-6503 are conflicting with changes that went in
for DERBY-6287. If there is an issue with backporting DERBY-6287 to 10.10, please let me know
but from the description of this improvement, it seems like it should be ok.

> The FileUtil class uses reflection to call the following java.io.File methods:
>   setWritable(boolean, boolean)
>   setReadable(boolean, boolean)
>   setExecutable(boolean, boolean)
> Reflection was used because the methods were introduced in Java 6, and the code had to
run on older platforms. Now Java 6 is the lowest supported platform, so we can call the methods
directly.
