Re: Moving to JDK7, JDK8 and new major releases
Chris,

Compiling with jdk7 and doing javac -target 1.6 is not sufficient, you are
still using jdk7 libraries and you could use new APIs, thus breaking jdk6
both at compile and runtime.

you need to compile with jdk6 to ensure you are not running into that
scenario. that is why i was suggesting the nightly jdk6 build/test jenkins
job.
