Subject [jira] [Commented] (MJAVADOC-499) Ignore module-info.java on earlier Java versions
Date Sun, 05 Nov 2017 12:51:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MJAVADOC-499?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16239515#comment-16239515

Robert Scholte commented on MJAVADOC-499:
-----------------------------------------

So you have a Java 9 project and want to generate the Javadoc with Java 8 (or before)? Looks
odd to me, because it'll also remove the interesting module related information and the new
search options.
I think we should motivate people to Java 9 javadoc in this case and maybe add an example
with your profile if they really want to do it differently. Yes it is verbose, but hopefully
that'll make people aware of their choice.

> Versions of the javadoc tool prior to Java 9 cannot process `module-info.java`. The plugin
should automatically detect and exclude `module-info.java` if the javadoc tool is Java 8 or
earlier. The alternative (Java version specific profiles) does work, but is very verbose for
something that can never work (thus the plugin should deal with it)
