Subject [jira] [Created] (FLEX-48) Building the SDK with Java 7
Date Wed, 18 Apr 2012 17:58:40 GMT
Building the SDK with Java 7

                 Key: FLEX-48
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-48
             Project: Apache Flex
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Christophe Herreman
            Assignee: Bertrand Delacretaz

I've changed the SDK a bit to be able to build it with Java 7. Everything seems to compile,
although that is no guarantee that things will actually work.

The main problem is the Batik dependency. The version used by the trunk version is 1.6. When
building with Java 7, this results in some compiler errors for classes in the com.sun.* packages.
So I've updated the build scripts to use Batik version 1.7 (there is an option to NOT use
the Sun classes in the build file of that version) and resolved some more compilation issues
(missing dependency xml-apis-ext.jar, API changes in the dependencies).

Attached is a patch with the changes. Please try this out if you have a moment and let me
know if this works for you. These changes are compatible with Java 6, so when applying the
patch you should still be able to build the SDK without changing your Java installation.
