[jitsi-dev] Jitsi and Felix 4.0.2


#1

Hi,

I have just try to test Jitsi with Felix 4.0.2 (from http://mirror.ibcp.fr/pub/apache//felix/org.apache.felix.main.distribution-4.0.2.tar.gz package) on my Linux laptop (in order to work with OpenJDK 7) and despites 613 compilation warnings (with JDK 7), it seems to compile and run fine (either with JRE 6 or JRE 7).

I wonder if we can update felix.jar soon in Jitsi. I think of Windows users which will probably download Oracle Java 7 (as it is the first Java SE choice in http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html) when they first install JRE. By the way we have seen some users on IRC and on the mailing list that had Java 7 as default JRE and reported that Jitsi cannot launch. BTW in some Linux distribution (Debian, Ubuntu, ...), OpenJDK 7 is available in repository.

I will try to test also on Windows and on Mac OS X (with the JDK 7 OS X port developer preview) this week-end to see if there are no other problems (especially on Windows).

What do you think ?

Regards,

Hey

With the Update of Felix to 3.2.2 it should run on JRE7. I talked with Emil about Felix 4 off-list and we agreed to wait: Felix 4 introduces generics to all the OSGi stuff, which would produce massive loads of warnings in our code. And because of the ongoing Android port it would apparently introduce problems there (as Felix is not used there).

Regards,
Ingo

Hi Ingo,

OK thanks.

I remember some time ago the fix to run with Java 7 was to use Felix 4 and I test directly this way. Now I test with Felix 3.2.2/JDK 7 and compilation/run OK.
