Subject Re: Ready for JDK 9 ?
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2017 16:12:24 GMT
Compress HEAD is tested against the equivalent of RC. The main issues were
with tests; some types of mocking (especially of concrete classes) don't
work. This might have been fixed by now.
I believe that the latest jacoco is 9 compatible.

[The biggest problem was caused by a bug in the zip code handling a
particular kind of timestamp; massive changes to the jdk implementation of
zip caused tests that had been passing (but shouldn't have) to fail
properly.]

NOTE:

Adding a Module name manifest header asserts that the code is tested
against Java 9. This is documented in the minutes of the armistice talks.

jigsaw modules are pretty useless for most of Commons (consumers pretty
much have to shade dependencies). [ subliminal whisper about benefits of
having correct OSGI headers]
