We are still using the rather outdated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?
