Subject [jira] [Created] (WW-4402) JDK 8: build fails due to missing apt tool
Date Fri, 12 Sep 2014 07:09:33 GMT
Rene Gielen created WW-4402:
-------------------------------

             Summary: JDK 8: build fails due to missing apt tool
                 Key: WW-4402
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-4402
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Build Management
    Affects Versions: 2.3.16.3
         Environment: JDK 8
            Reporter: Rene Gielen
             Fix For: 2.5


The generation of Struts Taglib TLD files relies on annotation processing with the apt tool,
wrapped by maven-apt-plugin.
In JDK 7 apt has been [deprecated|http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/apt/GettingStarted.html]
in favor of [JSR 269|https://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=269]. In JDK 8 apt tool has been [removed
completely|http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/117].
In effect, Struts core and all tag library projects relying on the struts-annotation helper
library won't build any longer under JDK 8. A major effort is needed to introduce a compatible
replacement.
