Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6857) Deprecate support for building Derby under JDKs 6 and 7
Date Fri, 29 Jan 2016 00:58:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6857?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15122661#comment-15122661
] 

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-6857:
--------------------------------------

This means that DRDAConstants and friends will NOT appear in the Derby jar files. So it should
cause your Windows builds to once again agree with the checked-in rosters of jar-file contents.
I can imagine that there might be sealing problems if one of these files of constants leaked
into multiple jar files--which I think is what you are seeing.

I will need your help to verify that the build works smoothly for you on Windows after I check
in the improvement to classlister. Thanks!

> The community voted to stop supporting Java 6 and 7 as of release 10.13. See the 2015-09-12
entry here: http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/VoteResults. We no longer need to support building
Derby with those JDKs. This issue tracks changes needed to remove that support and simplify
the build.
