Subject Java8 and APT
Date Sun, 22 Dec 2013 07:32:48 GMT
Hi all,

I just gave the new Java8 EA b120 a spin and the only things failing are
the apt tests[1] (and there still are > 100 javadoc errors, but that's a
different story).

If anybody familiar with apt could give it a look that would be great.
It may be worth fixing this before 1.9.3.  OTOH if nobody finds the time
to do so, we should not delay the release IMHO.


[1] for one if I run the test manually it spits out

| warning: The apt tool and its associated API are planned to be
| removed in the next major JDK release.  These features have been
| superseded by javac and the standardized annotation processing API,
| javax.annotation.processing and javax.lang.model.  Users are
| recommended to migrate to the annotation processing features of
| javac; see the javac man page for more information.

and the tests don't compile as the com.sun.mirror.apt package is nowhere
to be found.  I've never used apt and haven't got any real-world
examples to tell whether only the tests are broken or the task is broken
as well.
