Description Milan Kubec 2004-06-16 13:02:53 UTC
[dev-200406151800, JDK 1.5.0 Beta3 b55]

I've added platform JDK 1.3.1_07 and set this
platform for already created project. The project
cannot be built, error message says:
Compiling 1 source file to
javac: invalid flag: -source

Chaning subcomponents to project
Comment 2 David Konecny 2004-06-23 17:05:19 UTC

when explicit platform is set we start <javac> task with fork=true and
executable=path_to_javac. The problem is that if platform is JDK 1.3
there is no "source" parameter and <javac> task does not filter it out
because it does not know of what version the executed javac is.

So the solution could be:
* modify j2se-project.xsd to allow <explicit-platform> element to have
value which would be specification version of JDK.
* use the value in build-impl.xsl to generate "source" attribute of
javac/javadoc tasks only for explicit-platform > 1.3

I'm not expert in XSL but I guess it should be easy to do.

Do you agree? Any better solution?
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2004-06-23 17:20:42 UTC
Or add an attribute to <explicit-platform> saying whether or not
-source is supported, so the options would be

1. (nothing)

2. <explicit-platform explicit-source-supported="true"/> (1.4+)

3. <explicit-platform explicit-source-supported="false"/> (1.3-)

Unfortunately I don't see any better solution, since <javac> does not
handle it for you.

Partially fixed in:
new revision: 1.6; previous revision: 1.5
new revision: 1.17; previous revision: 1.16

Tomas, please update build-impl.xsl to use new attribute. DO NOT
FORGET that it must be done both for <javac> and <javadoc>.

Checking in
 <--  build-impl.xsl

Comment 6 Jesse Glick 2004-06-24 16:07:06 UTC
Did someone check existing projects in to see if they need
updating? (nbbuild/validate-project-xmls.xml) And notify nbdev?
