Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARIES-708) org.apache.aries.util pom should point to java6-parent, not java5-parent
Date Tue, 12 Jul 2011 14:17:00 GMT


Alasdair Nottingham commented on ARIES-708:

Based on Valentin's comment I think we have this situation where you can't build aries with
a Java 5 SDK because too much needs Java 6, but some things we want to run on Java 5. Right
now we get into this kind of problem where @Overrides are added which work, because you use
the Java 6 compiler, but break those who enforce the Java 5 rules (mainly m2e). 

If we changed the Java 5 parent so it accepted Java 6 source, but kept everything else the
same I would hope it would ensure compatibility with Java 5 JVMs (even when compiling using
Java 6) but also allow @Override.
