- Thread-topic: [dtp-dev] DTP to move to Java 6 for Juno
The described Java 6 support is now effective,
starting in DTP 1.10 M5.
A DTP bundle may now specify its required use of Java 6
compiler, by specifying the following BREE setting in the bundle
The BREE entry is required by Eclipse simultaneous release in all bundles with Java code. It would trigger the DTP build task to use the corresponding version of Java to compile the bundle.
FYI, the DTP PMC is planning to change
the Java JDK level that is used to build the DTP project from Java 5 to Java 6
by the end of January 2012. (That is, for the Juno M5 milestone.)
This applies to DTP 1.10 only. (That
is, DTP for the "Juno" release train.) DTP 1.9.2 will continue to be built
with Java 5.
To prepare for this
change, the DTP 1.9.2 code stream will be branched off from the DTP 1.10 code
stream in mid-January.
respond to this mailing list or to the DTP newsgroup (eclipse.dtp at
news.eclipse.org) if you have any comments or concerns about this change.
