Subject [DISCUSS] Should Tika require Java6? (was Re: Build failed in Jenkins: Tika-trunk #977)
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2013 16:54:53 GMT
Hey Guys,

Just to summarize, the question on the table is whether or not Tika should
require Java6. We had some discussions on this previously (if I get time,
will dig up the threads -- ok found time ;) ):

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-888

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/tika-dev/201011.mbox/%3CC8F38B50.2
3828%25Chris.A.Mattmann@jpl.nasa.gov%3E


I'm +1 for it. Seems like so is Mike, and also Ken K. Any objections from
others to require Java6?

Cheers,
Chris
