Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-7069) Replace forrest with supported framework
Date Tue, 21 Dec 2010 06:49:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7069?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12973495#action_12973495

Carl Steinbach commented on HADOOP-7069:
----------------------------------------

You can make Forrest work with JDK5 by making a one line change to your forrest.properties
file.
See FOR-984 or PIG-1508.

Are there any problems with Forrest besides the JDK5 issue?

> It's time to burn down the forrest.  Apache forrest, which is used to generate the documentation
for all three subprojects, has not had a release in several years (0.8, the version we use
was released April 18, 2007), and requires JDK5, which was EOL'ed in November 2009.  Since
it doesn't seem likely Forrest will be developed any more, and JDK5 is not shipped with recent
OSX versions, or included by default in most linux distros, we should look to find a new documentation
system and convert the current docs to it.
