Subject Building in recent environments: Java 7 and Mozilla
Date Tue, 02 Jul 2013 06:10:20 GMT
I tried building OpenOffice on the coming Fedora 19 to see how it worked 
with a fairly recent set of build tools. As for STLport, I used the 
default choice for 32-bit systems (this uses the STLPort package from 
the external sources we bundle).

We have two problems with the current trunk:

- The "hsqldb" module does not build with Java 7. The patch at 
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=121754 fixes it and, since 
this is the only part that does not build with Java 7, this should be 
checked and possibly integrated (the issue is set as a possible release 
blocker).

- The "moz" module does not build. It can really be anything, I didn't 
check: one problematic line in code, an obsolete language pattern, a 
compiler bug... I just reconfigured with --disable-mozilla for the 
purpose of finishing the build. Is this something that should be 
investigated or are we going to get rid of this module soon? If I recall 
correctly, it is obsolete, unmaintained, external code.

Regards,
   Andrea.
