Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-2957) [classlib][pack200] Update pack200 project layout and ensure 1.4 compatibility
Date Tue, 30 Jan 2007 08:50:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-2957?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12468541

Alex Blewitt commented on HARMONY-2957:

The build.xml contains:


I had this hard-coded as 1.4 and 1.4 in my patch. Obviously these are defaulting to 1.5 instead
somehow. How do the hy.pack200.javac.source property get instantiated? We need to make sure
these are 1.4 instead.

Also, the generics stuff needs 1.5+ -- if you know that hy.javac.source >= 1.5, then there
shouldn't be an issue; but it can't work on anything less.

(build.xml in https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/attachment/12348604/pack200-project.patch)

Also, the pak200-java5.jar is missing and is needed by the .classpath 


which will otherwise result in an error when building it. This isn't needed for the build
(it re-compiles the code in java5) but is for any tests that are going to run and need the
Packer interface. I did add a readme in the patch (https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/attachment/12348604/pack200-project.patch)
pack200-java5.README.txt but that doesn't seem to be added either.

Can these issues be resolved?

> This patch adds support for the Eclipse project to be based on 1.4 compatibility, rather
than 1.5 compatibility. I've split the Java source into two; src/main/java and src/main/java5
-- the latter needs to be compiled with a 1.5 system, the former with a 1.4 system. I've amended
the build.xml appropriately to have multiple targets in the appropriate sections, and tested
it out (though I've had to hack the build to get it to work on Mac OS X).
> I'm pretty sure there's a cleaner way of adding source folders than I've done, but I'm
open to suggestions. The src/main/java needs to be compiled on a 1.4 system, and the src/main/java5
needs to be compiled on a 1.5 (or with 1.5 support, anyway). To make life easier for an Eclipse
developer working on the project in 1.4 mode, the java5 has been exported to pack200-java5.jar
and included in with the patch (though, for some reason, the diff tool doesn't like binary
files so I'm having to attach it manually). 
> I've fixed the SegmentTest; I'm not sure if inheriting this again is a case of deleting
the make/excludes* files; but I've not done that in this patch. I can supply another patch
if this is the case.
> I've also written a new test to ensure that the compiled class files are generated with
1.4 compatibility, which should hopefully prevent this form being inadvertently reverted in
the future.
