Subject Re: Jenkins build is back to normal : Pivot-maintenance on Java 8 #1120
Date Wed, 17 May 2017 14:59:47 GMT
So, the "maintenance" branch (2.0.x) still only requires Java 1.6, so 
why are we only building with Java 8?  I would think we should be 
building with Java 1.6, so we know that it works at the lowest common 
denominator still.....  Is that possible?  Does the Jenkins machine have 
access to Java 1.6 JDK?  If not, then I think we should be 
building/testing "maintenance" with 1.7, since that is the most likely 
"lowest common denominator" actively being used at this point....

Actually, I would think we should be doing "maintenance" builds with all 
three:  1.6, 1.7 and 1.8, just to check to make sure it works with any 
Java version that Pivot 2.0.x will accept....  For "trunk" we could just 
have 1.8 builds, since that is what we are targeting at this point.

Thoughts?  Is this possible?
