Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-7038) Upgrade ant version and re-write javadoc build targets to use improved <javadoc>task
Date Sun, 12 May 2019 16:11:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-7038?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16838097#comment-16838097

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-7038:

I have upgraded my ant version to 1.10.6, successfully built Derby, and successfully run the
tests both with a classpath and a module path.

>            Priority: Major
> Version 1.10.6 of ant will enhance the <javadoc> task in order to understand some
of the module-aware switches introduced by Java 9. Currently, our javadoc targets work around
the limitations of the <javadoc> task by running javadoc via the <java> task.
We should upgrade our version of ant and re-write the javadoc targets to take advantage of
the improvements introduced by ant 1.10.16 (see https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/ant/RELEASE-NOTES-1.10.6.html).
I imagine this work will occur in 3 phases:
> 1) Upgrade the Jenkins scripts to require ant 1.10.6.
> 2) Upgrade our build scripts to require ant 1.10.6.
> 3) Re-wire our javadoc targets.
