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 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 

- 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correctly, it is obsolete, unmaintained, external code.
