Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6974) Deprecate support for building Derby under JDK 8
Date Wed, 15 Nov 2017 00:57:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6974?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16252773#comment-16252773

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-6974:

Hey Bryan,

The min.version variable is used to set the "source" and "target" attributes of the <javac>
element, that is, to set the -source and -target command line options of the the JDK's javac
tool. See https://docs.oracle.com/javase/9/tools/javac.htm#JSWOR627. I see that 1.9 isn't
a synonym for level 9 (1.8 was a synonym for level 8). I will refresh the patch. Does that
answer your question?

> In July, the Derby community voted to deprecate support for JDK 8 and move development
on the 10.15 trunk to JDK 9. See http://apache-database.10148.n7.nabble.com/RESULT-VOTE-Sunsetting-support-for-Java-8-td147735.html
> This issue tracks the work of converting the Derby build from JDK 8 to JDK 9 and higher.
This effort relies on the work already done on DERBY-6856.
