Patrick Hunt updated ZOOKEEPER-210: ----------------------------------- Hadoop Flags: [Incompatible change] Status: Patch Available (was: Open) submitting patch and marking incompatible wrt the required java version is bumped up to 6 -- we need to document this in the release notes and changes file as incompatible. > Require Java 6 > -------------- > > Key: ZOOKEEPER-210 > URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-210 > Project: Zookeeper > Issue Type: Task > Components: documentation, java client, jmx, server > Reporter: Patrick Hunt > Assignee: Patrick Hunt > Fix For: 3.1.0 > > Attachments: ZOOKEEPER-210.patch > > > 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.
