#168 closed enhancement (invalid)

SmartCVS doesn't support OpenJDK

Description

E:\programs\openjdk6\bin\JAVA.EXE -jar C:\PROGRAMS\smartcvs-7_1_6\LIB\smartcvs.jar
An incompatible Java version has been detected which has been reported to cause strange bugs. Aborting now.

This is in fact officially stated: http://www.syntevo.com/smartcvs/documentation.html?page=installation
"... beta version of OpenJDK [is] not sufficient"

On the other side, it works fine with Java 1.4.

Hi Gabrielle

It is strange. With SmartSVN 7.0.3 I can run SmartSVN with
"java -Dsmartsvn.checkIncompatibleJava=false -jar smartsvn.jar"

I remember I used to run SmartCVS for testing, but I can no longer make it run. (version 7.1.6). Is it possible that the author forgot to add the "checkIncompatibleJava" on SmartCVS?

Maybe OpenJDK people could ask for it? It seems strange to me that the bypass is available for SmartSVN and not for SmartCVS!

Did you try the switch -Dsmartcvs.checkIncompatibleJava=false already? Note that "smartsvn" becomes "smartcvs".

No luck:

C:\PROGRAMS\smartcvs-7_1_6\lib>E:\PROGRAMS\OPENJDK6\BIN\JAVA.EXE -Dsmartcvs.checkIncompatibleJava=false -jar smartcvs.jar

Then it should be reported to SmartCVS developers. We can't do anything about that.

Just asked to Syntevo support to add smartcvs.checkIncompatibleJava=false to SmartCVS.

SmartCVS generic bundle from

http://www.syntevo.com/smartcvs/download.html

doesn't check the Java version any more :-)

Does it then work now?

comment:9 Changed 8 years ago by Gabriele Gamba

Yes :-) I did not use it too extensively, but it seems more stable than under 1.4.2.

Great.
