> 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:
