Subject Re: Building Solr greater than 6.2.1

There was a Java compiler bug I think that was introduced and then fixed.
Took me two days to figure out when I hit that a while ago.

I was using Java 8 all along but more specifically, it was 1.8.0_25 (full
details below).

java version "1.8.0_25"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_25-b17)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.25-b02, mixed mode)

I initially didn't think it was my Java version so I just cleared my ivy
cache and tried building again but it failed. Only after updating to:

java version "1.8.0_131"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_131-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.131-b11, mixed mode)

did it work.
