Subject [jira] [Commented] (MCOMPILER-335) Update default source/target
Date Sat, 26 May 2018 07:29:00 GMT


Robert Scholte commented on MCOMPILER-335:

I didn't mean dropping the value. source+target or release must be required parameters as they
are right now, otherwise the results depend on the JDK version, that's not what I want. I'd
prefer not to change the value, it is good enough to make a "Hello World" application. Developers
should be motivated to always set this value, in case somebody decides in the future to change
the default value (again). But _if_ we do, then go for the lowest version supported by the
highest JDK. That would mean 1.6.

> default source/target have been set to 1.5 in 2010 (MCOMPILER-80). I think it's about
time to update the default.
> 1.8 would be my preference, as 9 /10 would probably be a tad too ambitious.
> But, since Maven requires at least Java 1.7 to run, 1.7 is probably the safest option.
