Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-847) Add back java 6 source compatibility
Date Fri, 14 Feb 2014 23:17:22 GMT

Avery Ching commented on GIRAPH-847:
------------------------------------

If we have to support Java 6, we can't use any of the Java 7 features.  Also, Java 6 is no
longer supported.

I build with Java 7 and haven't seen any unitests failures from trunk.

> While I understand that java 7 is the default for Giraph now, I suspect there are some
folks such as myself who are stuck with java 6 for the time being. It doesn't seem like Giraph
is heavily taking advantage of java 7 features yet so it might be nice if the remainder of
the 1.x releases keep java 6 source compatibility (at least for graph-core). By my count there
are only 6 source files in giraph-core that use java 7 syntax.
