Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] jdt.core move to Java 7 BREE

Hi Doug

Indeed, But "As stated above, we expect that Eclipse works fine on other current Java VM and OS versions but we cannot flag these as reference platforms without significant community support for testing them."

This is a statement of tested support. The change to jdt.core breaks Java 6 support. i.e. it guarantees non-functionality on Java 6.

Hi

(I would love it if Mars required Java 8, since I like @NonNull annotations and the Java 7 compatibility is really troublesome.)

However I am keen that my project follows the Eclipse consensus, which does not seem to exist. My Hudson builds now fail so I need to know where the new consensus is.

What is the rationale for wanting to keep BREE levels as low as possible? Even Java 7 enters the “no further public updates” phase in April of this year. JRE 7 users in the normal update pipeline were upgraded to Java 8 in January. Are there really users out there who _cannot_ run a newer version of the JRE despite security and performance implications of running an old version? I am guessing that if Mars were to require Java 8, there would be some initial grumbling over having to upgrade, then everyone moves on in a better and more secure configuration.

Hi

But this is important.

When osgi.utils moved from Java 5 to Java 6 that made Eclipse almost unuseable as a Java 5 platform; not really a problem.

Now jdt.core does nearly the same thing for Eclipse as a Java 6 platform. Are we ready to go that far? IMHO it certainly should be discussed and announced.

Hi Ed

Yes, this was intended. We never announce BREE changes.

Hi

Is the recent change in BREE for org.eclipse.jdt.core from Java 6 to
Java 7 intended?

Was it announced?
