Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2325) Require Java 6
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2008 20:05:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2325?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12608567#action_12608567
] 

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-2325:
--------------------------------------

> Would it be possible to move all the servers to java6, but keep the DFSClient on java
5? 

Maintaining that would be more painful than the benefits it would offer.  We should wholly
switch to Java 6 or wholly stay in Java 5.

> We should require Java 6 for release 0.17.  Java 6 is now available for OS/X.  Hadoop
performs much better on Java 6.  And, finally, there are features of Java 6 (like 'df') that
would be nice to use.
