Subject RE: Early-access build b95 of JDK 9 is available for download
Date Mon, 07 Dec 2015 14:44:55 GMT
Hi Rory,


The Apache Lucene test suite passes perfectly with project Verona. Apache Solr also passes
its main module, but because of a dependent library, Solr’s DataExtractionHandler tests
don’t pass. In fact some 3rd party JAR (Apache PDFBOX) parses “java.version” in some
incompatible way…. (as described in the JEP:  “Note that all code which has historically
detected . in any of these system properties as part of version identification will need to
be examined and potentially modified. For example, System.getProperty("java.version").indexof('.')
will return -1 for major releases.”


See the following issue:

Hi Uwe & Dawid, 

Early-access builds of JDK 9 with Project Verona [0] in b95 are available for download here
<> . 

The goal of this Project is to implement the new JDK version string as described in JEP-223
<>  [1].
The new version-string scheme is designed to easily distinguish major, minor, and security-update
For more information please see Iris Clark's email [2] , also see Dalibor Topic's blog on
this topic [3].

Please send usage questions, feedback and experience reports to the verona-dev <>
