Subject jdk6 on darwin (was: 14.1 to 14.2)
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2007 17:34:35 GMT
Does anybody know if there is a jdk6 available for Mac?  I checked the apple developer site,
and there doesn't seem to be one available, despite blogs from last year claiming apple was
distributing it.

Since I do my development work on a Mac, switching to jdk6 would be very difficult for me
if I can't find a darwin jdk6.  I need to be able to build job jars and patch hadoop.

Yes, it seems I built the 0.14.2 release using 1.6 by accident.  Sorry!
  If this is a blocker for folks, please file an issue in Jira and I
will make a 0.14.3 tarball that's compiled with Java 1.5 instead.

Yes, that is the case.  Hudson uses Java 1.5.

Can you please file an issue in Jira for this?  Then folks can weigh in
