Subject RE: JDK 7 Results (was RE: [VOTE] Release Apache ODF Toolkit 0.5-incubating(RC7))

The tools.jar is in the usual JDK location and the packages are there.

There is a way to run Maven where it shows the commands it executes and I may do that to see
what the compile command looks like.  Since Maven is synthesizing class-path parameters, it
would be interesting to see what the compile command is and whether there is a command-line
change in Java 7.

I'm out of time on this for now, but I will take another crack at it eventually.

Does Java 7 give you a tools.jar at all?  If so, what happens if you
just add it to the classpath?
