Subject [jira] [Commented] (TAVERNA-867) Javadoc plugin causes Java 8 build issues
Date Mon, 01 Feb 2016 09:20:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAVERNA-867?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15125990#comment-15125990

Stian Soiland-Reyes commented on TAVERNA-867:

Could we have a quick check for this in the README files before the next release?  Basically
it was raised during the 0.15.0 release of taverna-language that it claims it works with Java
7, but actually there's a javadoc setting for JDK8 that means it fails in Java 7.

While we could have retrofitted Java 7 support with profiles, I think TAVERNA-869 concluded
that we should just go for Java 8 now that Java 7 is almost a year after its End of Life.

> To build with Java 8 the taverna-language pom had to add the maven javadoc plugin with
the param "-Xdoclint:none". This means that Java 7 cannot build unless you include -Dmaven.javadoc.skip=true.
However, Java 7 is now end of life so we need to ensure all docs are updated to point out
that Java 7 is not supported any more and to include the javadoc plugin in pom files if required.
