Roger Whitcomb commented on PIVOT-895:

Made some initial changes to require 1.7 in "trunk":
Sending        build.properties
Sending        build.xml
Transmitting file data ..
Committed revision 1510790.

And then cleaned up some warnings from doing a 1.7 build:
Sending        core\src\org\apache\pivot\collections\ArrayAdapter.java
Sending        core\src\org\apache\pivot\collections\ArrayList.java
Sending        core\src\org\apache\pivot\collections\HashMap.java
Sending        core\src\org\apache\pivot\collections\HashSet.java

>             Project: Pivot
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Sandro Martini

>              Labels: build, dependencies, java
>             Fix For: 2.5
> Now that Java 6 is going in Out-of-Life (and support without paying for it) it's time
to update dependencies and require Java 7 as a minimum version to build and run Pivot Applications.
> Of course maintenance branch 2.0.x will stay with Java 6 as requirements.
> Some related info:

> http://www.infoq.com/news/2012/08/ava-6-eol-extended
> And then, verify if disable (not delete for now) existing jobs on Jenkins that builds
the trunk with Java 6 ... anyway they could be useful to see if we have some incompatibility
with Java 6.
> Then, we can even remove few little tricks due to bugs (not fixed) in Java 6.
