Hi all,

I was trying to find the minimum supported Java version for Indigo / 3.7
Is there any page documenting that?

Greetings

Sacha,

Each bundle has its own constraints for what it needs to run. Many
Eclipse platform bundles will run with Java 1.4, but I'm pretty sure
some need Java 5.0. I'm also pretty sure that none need Java 6.0; I
don't think the class file formats have changed. Don't mix that up with
which JDKs you can develop against in the IDE. There is no minimum for
that.

Hi Ed,

thanks for the quick response. Yes, I was talking about the runtime dependency. I thought there was some sort of minimum required version (the project plan for Kepler contains one: http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project-plan.php?projectid=eclipse#target_environments - and there it is Java6) and every bundle participating in the release train is checked against that target environment.

Anyway, as my main concerns were regarding XText and EMF I think I can trust your intuition that it's all Java5 compatible Wink
