[cross-project-issues-dev] Java 5 no longer supported as runtime?

Hi all,


I just switched our Graphiti build to the Eclipse Core update site for Luna M2 ( After doing that our tests failed with UnsupportedClassVersionError and NoClassDefFoundError.


We are still using the rather outdated Java 1.5 for compilation and starting the tests, but so far this was not a problem. After anylysing the test failure, it seems these exceptions are caused by the class org.eclipse.core.runtime.adaptor.EclipseStarter (part of the plugin org.eclipse.osgi) being compiled using Java 1.6.


I remember a lengthy discussion on the usage of Java 1.5 in this group, but don’t remember a specific result or action item. Now I wonder, if that switch (compiling org.eclipse.osgi using Java 1.6) happened by accident or on purpose. If the latter, has there been any announcement I missed?
