Subject RE: Master branch and java version
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2016 17:38:53 GMT


I committed the following fix, simplifying the code to a one-liner:


This should work around the 8u25 bug.


Can anybody verify this?

And ditto, thanks Alan.  I hit this issue myself yesterday morning and had just finished working
through upgrading my JDK and getting master compiling again when I saw your message.

I also ran into the same problem. I was using 1.8.0_31 . Upgrading worked though.

Compiles under 1.8.0_74, gives this error for 1.8.0_25

Can you post the error? I touched that code yesterday. Maybe I broke that. It would still
be good to fix this.

Just in case anybody else out there runs into this, I was having problems compiling master
earlier using Java 1.8.0_25, due to the compiler not liking an immediate assignment to a final
variable in  Upgrading to 1.8.0_74 made the problem go away.
