Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Change in the default java on

Hi all,
I had the same problem with last week.
After trying around with combination of different processors and ant versions
I gave up and switched to the /usr/lib64/jvm/java-1_6_0-ibm-1.6.0
We really need a better JVM default, for HIPPs and

Best regards,

Hi Laurent

A long time ago GNU Java was the almost unuseable default for vanilla Unix systems.

Have you perhaps just switched to a new unconfigured platform such as a HIPP where the defaults are different?

With Luna M4, we've begun to see "strange" failures in our ant promoters :
javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: no xsl:version attribute on literal result node
This happened for us on the ant promoters for EMF Compare and Acceleo, and we also had a random failure on one of our builds :

It seems like this same failure also happened for EMF :

I ultimately tracked this down to our "JAVA_HOME" pointing to a 1.5.0 gcj version of the jre on :

> $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -version
java version "1.5.0"
gij (GNU libgcj) version 4.3.4 [gcc-4_3-branch revision 152973]

Strangely enough, this isn't the version used in our PATH :

> java -version
java version "1.6.0_27"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_27-b07)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.2-b06, mixed mode)

after exporting a more appropriate version, ours promoters started to work anew :

> export JAVA_HOME=/shared/common/jdk-1.6.x86_64
> export JAVA_ROOT=/shared/common/jdk-1.6.x86_64
> export JAVA_BINDIR=/shared/common/jdk-1.6.x86_64/bin

Likewise, changing our failing hudson job's configuration from "(Default)" to an explicit "Java 6 R 30", the build worked like a charm.

Was this change to java 1.5.0-gcj announced somewhere, or is that an unexpected change?
