Require Java 6 -------------- Key: ZOOKEEPER-210 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-210 Project: Zookeeper Issue Type: Task Reporter: Patrick Hunt Assignee: Patrick Hunt Fix For: 3.1.0
We should require Java 6 for release 3.1.0. At this point there is full java6 support on all major platforms (linux/windows/macosx). The vast majority of ZooKeeper contributors use Java 6 when developing, and hence do run into (usually minor) back-compatibility problems. I believe there are also some benefits regarding JMX (updated spec support in java6) if we drop java 5. FWIW: Hadoop Core has also moved to require Java6: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2325 -- This message is automatically generated by JIRA. - You can reply to this email to add a comment to the issue online.
