      Description

      Java 1.5 is approaching its End-of-Life (EOL), which is scheduled for 30-Oct-2009:

      http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index_jdk5.jsp

      http://java.sun.com/products/archive/eol.policy.html

      For Sakai 2.5 and Sakai 2.6 (which currently is being QA'ed for release with Java 1.5) this means a switch to Java 1.6 at some point during their maintenance cycle.

      For Sakai 2.7, which is tentatively scheduled for code freeze in late 2009, this means we should start thinking about switching development of trunk/2.7 to using Java 1.6, and when it enters QA, it will be QA'ed with Java 1.6.

      For Sakai 3.0, which is still early in development, this likely also means a switch in development and QA to Java 1.6 at some point soon.

          I have tried compiling 2.5.x with Java 1.6 and I ran into the JJDBC error as well:

          [INFO] Compilation failure
          /Volumes/MacExt_SAK-1367/sakai/trunk/sam/samigo-services/src/java/org/sakaiproject/spring/DataSourceWrapperAutoCommit.java:[36,7] org.sakaiproject.spring.DataSourceWrapperAutoCommit is not abstract and does not override abstract method isWrapperFor(java.lang.Class<?>) in java.sql.Wrapper

          This happened *AFTER* changing the settings.xml file to include the line:
          .........
          <maven.test.skip>true</maven.test.skip>
                </properties>

          The description of this bug probably needs to be updated to exclude 2.5 and 2.6 from Java 1.6 consideration. These releases are out the door and I think it is unlikely they will be modified further for 1.6 compatibility.

          I thought this issue was still a community goal.
