Default Fwd: Default target Java for OpenJDK7

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Forwarding to debian-java list for wider discussion...

Switching the default target at the JDK level is a no-go as it will
break compatibility with upstream behaviour.

Anyone else got any ideas as to how to approach this issue?

Cheers

James

Hi Matthias

Saw your ping last night re backwards compatibility if/when we switch
the default-jdk to openjdk-7.

The same thought had crossed my mind as I started to work on the FTBFS
list with openjdk-7.

Here what I think the current state of the archive is with respect to
this future problem:

1) Maven based packages; currently default to source/target 1.3
unless override in the package itself (and most do).

2) Ant based packages; default to whatever the JDK does unless
explicitly set.

3) Javahelper based packages; source is set to 1.5 but target is left
to the JDK.

4) Others; all sorts of pain I guess!

There is alot of potential for stuff to get built that won't work on
openjdk-6 so we need todo something; maybe we could default openjdk-7
to use target 1.5 by default rather than 1.7? I don't like doing that
as it creates different behaviour on Ubuntu to upstream but we already
did it with Maven2 (should be default of 1.5 not 1.3).
