Subject [jira] Resolved: (OPENJPA-1520) Move trunk (2.0.x) to require Java 6 to build (but target 1.5 runtime)
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 13:32:28 GMT


Donald Woods resolved OPENJPA-1520.

    Resolution: Fixed

So, the final decision was to require 1.6 or later to build but still configure maven-compiler-plugin
to target 1.5.  Also, you can build and run the tests with a 1.5 JDK, by using the -Ptest-java5
profile (which the junits are still passing with both the Sun 1.5 JDK and IBM 1.6 SDK using

> We've had the discussion about dropping Java 5 support (build and runtime) from trunk.
 The above referenced string of notes indicates a favorable response.  Before we do an official
2.0.0 release, we should make this change.
> Besides the build aspects, I believe we still have some Java 5 runtime implications in
our runtime as well -- some reflection processing due to the jdbc4 support.  We should clean
that up as well.
> I've talked to Donald about this and he's game to start this process, but please contribute
ideas and testing as you see fit.  Thanks.
