Subject Batik and Java 7 non-compliancy
Date Wed, 21 Dec 2011 12:07:37 GMT
Hi all,


The current Batik release 1.7 is not compliant with Java 7 and gives build errors on the obsolete
Sun graphics libraries (Oracle removed them in Java 7). 


For example:

error: package com.sun.image.codec.jpeg does not exist


Is there a new release planned soon that solves these issues?  Personally I do not use the
JPEG and TIFF functionality in Batik so I can use the compiled jar instead for the time being,
but I'm not sure if this also works when you actually use this functionality. I would expect
you will get class not loaded exceptions on the obsolete sun classes.




Michiel Bronswijk.
