Subject [jira] [Updated] (HIVE-3632) Upgrade datanucleus to support JDK7
Date Sat, 20 Jul 2013 12:48:50 GMT


Brock Noland updated HIVE-3632:

    Attachment: HIVE-3632.1.patch

The patch "HIVE-3632.patch.1" is not in the correct format for the precommit tests and I'd
like to see it run. Therefore I am re-uploading the exact same patch named as "HIVE-3632.1.patch".

> I found serious problems with datanucleus code when using JDK7, resulting in some sort
of exception being thrown when datanucleus code is entered.
> I tried source=1.7, target=1.7 with JDK7 as well as source=1.6, target=1.6 with JDK7
and there was no visible difference in that the same unit tests failed.
> I tried upgrading datanucleus to 3.0.1, as per HIVE-2084.patch, which did not fix the
failing tests.
> I tried upgrading datanucleus to 3.1-release, as per the advise of,
which suggests using ASMv4 will allow datanucleus to work with JDK7. I was not successful
with this either.
> I tried upgrading datanucleus to 3.1.2. I was not successful with this either.
> Regarding datanucleus support for JDK7+, there is the following JIRA
> which suggests that they don't plan to actively support JDK7+ bytecode any time soon.
> I also tested the following JVM parameters found on
> with no success either.
> This will become a more serious problem as people move to newer JVMs. If there are other
who have solved this issue, please post how this was done. Otherwise, it is a topic that I
would like to raise for discussion.
