Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-5475) Java 8 tests are like maintenance overhead.
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2015 05:30:34 GMT


Prashant Sharma commented on SPARK-5475:

And this is how it looks after running in maven, with command
build/mvn clean install -Pjava8-tests -DskipTests -T 6

> Having tests that validate the same code compatible with java 8 and java 7 is like asserting
that java 8 is backward compatible with java 7 and still supports java 8 features(lambda expressions
to be precise). This was once necessary as asm was not compatible with java 8 and so on. 
> Running java8-tests on the current code base results in more than 100 compilation errors,
it felt as if they are never run. This is based on the fact that compilation errors have existed
for a pretty long period. So IMHO, we should really remove them, if we don't plan to maintain.
> Thoughts?
