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

Hi

I think that this thread is about both.

Nobody has advanced a strong argument for retaining Java 6 support, so we can move on without upsetting anybody.

Doug: if you examine the tabulated per-plugin BREEs in the platform project plan you will see a clear indication that jdt.core is 1.6. (The only 1.7 is the filesystem.java7 bundle.)

Therefore IMHO this change should have been announced:

a) because it was a change to the platform project plan
b) because it clearly has an impact on many other projects

Is this thread about what minimum BREE to use, or is it about announcing changes to this? I agree with most people here that Java 7 is a sensible minimum BREE for Mars, but I get the sense that this thread was more about how / where these changes are announced.

Cheers,
Ian

And we have a solution for this too --> LTS. If someone wants support for Eclipse for an older version of Java, then LTS would be the obvious recommendation. :)

I say: it should be every version receiving security updates public and free accessible for the community (committers, contributors and users). As of May 2015, Java 7 will fall out of that list. But that's just my two cents.
