Subject Re: Job is missing (was Re: java 5 build fails)
Date Sun, 11 Aug 2013 18:15:51 GMT
Some update on this issue: to avoid the issue, the latest Jenkins
version installed on builds.apache.org now tries to start the build
with Java 1.6 instead of 1.5 and to automatically configure the
compilation and test phases to use Java 1.5. This works for simple
and/or well designed builds (see e.g. Woden), but in case of Axis2,
this fails because the build does some compilation using Ant.

Since there have been no objections, I'm going to configure the Axis2
job with Java 1.6 and remove the Axis2-trunk-java-1.6 job.
