Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-847) Add back java 6 source compatibility
Date Sat, 15 Feb 2014 00:20:22 GMT


Armando Miraglia commented on GIRAPH-847:

Aha, this is something I can undrestand. However would that be a problem to keep it retro
compatbile or have a tag or a parallel branch which supports java6? This is mainly to keep
it available for more people. I mean, compiling the same code with java7, apart from using
specifics derived from java7, does not already provide better performance? Another story is
about the specific features of java7. About that, my suggestions above are just options. I
believe there are better ways to do so :) (possibily avoid munged! :D)

> 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.
