Description Konstantin Kolinko 2014-10-21 17:27:25 UTC
Eclipse 4.4.1 has been released. It is possible to update ECJ compiler from current version 4.4 to 4.4.1. Download page: http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops4/R-4.4.1-201409250400/ -> "JDT Core Batch Compiler" (There have been a report about JSP compilation issue (crash) with the ECJ 4.4. Unfortunately, updating to ecj-4.4.1 nor to a nightly does not fix that particial issue. I filed a bug report upstream to Eclipse project: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=448112 Thread at tomcat-users mailing list: http://tomcat.markmail.org/thread/jblxumvub6o7nusr ) (A warning: Regarding Eclipse IDE itself I would recommend against using version 4.4.1 aka Luna SR1 as a development environment, because of known regression that broke many components of the IDE, https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=445122#c7 This does not concern the ECJ compiler. )

Created attachment 32133 [details] 2014-10-21_tc8_57123_ecj441.patch Patch to update Tomcat 8 (trunk) to ECJ 4.4.1
Comment 2 Konstantin Kolinko 2014-10-21 18:10:01 UTC
Tomcat 8: - smoke testing: OK - testsuite (Nio connector): OK Thus ecj-4.4.1 can be used. A pending question is update of jasper poms, as ecj-4.4.1.jar is not yet available from Maven Central. https://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/JDTCoreBatchCompiler

(In reply to Violeta Georgieva from comment #4) I filed bug 57662 for Tomcat 8 to track update to 4.4.2. This issue (ECJ 4.4.1) waits for a backport to Tomcat 7.
Comment 6 Mark Thomas 2015-03-04 12:06:41 UTC
Fixed in 7.0.x for 7.0.60 onwards.
