Debian Linux 2.6, x86_84
Oracle Java 1.6.0_26, 64-bit Server VM

Binary ZIP and tarball are the same
Source ZIP and tarball are the same
MD5 sums are okay
GPG sigs are okay
tcnative builds fine, with some "notes"
Checkstyle is happy
Tomcat builds with one warning:

    [javac] Compiling 1313 source files to
warning: getFeatureDescriptors(javax.el.ELContext,java.lang.Object) in

    [javac] 1 warning

Unit tests pass (except Tribes, known to fail in my environment)

Quick smoke test on my own web application (no new features e.g.
Websocket are in use) shows no problems.

Looks good to me.

When using Java 1.7.0_40, tomcat-dbcp fails to build:

     [copy] Copying 68 files to
    [mkdir] Created dir:
     [move] Moving 64 files to
    [mkdir] Created dir:
    [javac] Compiling 64 source files to

    [javac]        ^
error: DelegatingStatement is not abstract and does not override
abstract method isCloseOnCompletion() in Statement
    [javac] public class DelegatingStatement extends AbandonedTrace

Building tomcat-dbcp with Java 1.6 and resuming the build with Java 7
shows everything is okay.

But, when I run all the tests, I get lots and lots of failures:
Testsuite: javax.el.TestArrayELResolver
Tests run: 1, Failures: 0, Errors: 1, Time elapsed: 0 sec

        Caused an ERROR

        at java.lang.Class.forName(

I'm fairly sure this is a problem with my environment. I have JAVA_HOME
set to point to Java 7 but I suspect somewhere that's getting overridden
when the tests are being run.

I'll follow up on that.
