Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-798) Upgrade Giraph to Java7 and fix all dependencies
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2013 12:53:37 GMT


Rob Vesse commented on GIRAPH-798:

Also down-compiling to Java 1.6 by changing the {} is not an option
because the code has changed ( to use a language construct not supported
in Java 1.6 (multi-catch statement):

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:3.0:compile
(default-compile) on project giraph-core: Compilation failure
[ERROR] /Users/rvesse/Documents/Work/Code/giraph/giraph-core/target/munged/main/org/apache/giraph/worker/[1535,30]
multi-catch statement is not supported in -source 1.6
[ERROR] (use -source 7 or higher to enable multi-catch statement)

> We need to upgrade to Java 7, Java 6 is no longer supported and Java 7 provides a lot
of great new features.
> Additionally, we have a mess of dependencies.
> Incompatible versions, unspecified dependencies, and duplicate classes.  We will add
checks for all of them.
> For now, full checks are provided for the profiles
> hadoop_0.20.203
> hadoop_1.0
> hadoop_facebook
> Also, the hcatalog module is not fully fixed and excluded from the checking.  We can
fix this in the future.
