Subject [jira] [Created] (MDEP-521) Unpack goal fails in java versions earlier than 7
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2016 18:15:18 GMT
Jason W. Thompson created MDEP-521:

             Summary: Unpack goal fails in java versions earlier than 7
                 Key: MDEP-521
             Project: Maven Dependency Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: unpack
    Affects Versions: 2.10
            Reporter: Jason W. Thompson

When using the unpack goal with Java 1.5 or 1.6, the following error message will appear:

{{\[ERROR\] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-dependency-plugin:2.10:unpack
(unpack) on project ID-JRE_8.0: Execution unpack of goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-dependency-plugin:2.10:unpack
failed: An API incompatibility was encountered while executing org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-dependency-plugin:2.10:unpack:

This is obviously calling a method introduced in Java 7. This contradicts the about page\[1\]
that indicates that JDK 1.5 is the minimum required.

This bug does not appear until version 2.10. Version 2.9 works fine.
