If bigtop is really the "fedora" of bigdata distros, then moving to Java 7 is the natural thing to do.
Fedora integrates the trailblazing linux technology - without fear of consequences.... and I see BigTop as doing the exact same thing in the hadoop community.
For me -- BigTop is a platform to innovate and do cool new stuff on -- so I say keep it that way and keep fearlessly moving forward :) On Thu, Jun 26, 2014 at 6:34 PM, Roman Shaposhnik <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: jay vyas
I totally agree, I don't know if it makes sense to bring in the complexity of switching out major java version for Bigtop 0.8 at this point. On Thu, Jun 26, 2014 at 3:59 PM, jay vyas <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
I beg to differ: Bigtop is a Debian of bigdata ;) Agree with the rest though. However, the question is about timing. I'd say: we can try to give it a full build attempt using nothing but JDK7 and see how the things are going. If something breaks - we can do 0.8.1. which will only be focused on JDK7 upgrade. Thought?

At this point, I'd suggest biting the bullet and declaring 0.8.0 JDK7+ only. Even for build. Three of the dozen or so projects already refuse to be built by anything but: * Hue 3.6 (can be hacked to stay with JDK6, but who will do it?) * Solr 4.9.0 (ditto) * Giraph 1.1.0 (not sure whether JDK7 specific functionality remains)
So, unless somebody volunteers to solve all three of the above, I think 0.8.0 is about to move to JDK7.
