Too bad this wasn't spotted earlier. Is anyone following the
Sapphire mailing-list or bugzilla component?
The new TP includes the updated Sapphire v.
Sapphire was updated in M7 and this version is not compatible
v.220.127.116.11408261741 which was included in Mars TP before
Batch and Arquillian tools require Sapphire. It's not a big deal
for us to migrate Batch and Arquillian to new Sapphire API.
But the problem is that the new Sapphire (M7) has RequiredExecutionEnvironment:
Well, Java 7 has reached end-of-life a few days ago, so I would
support the idea of requiring Java 8 for those components. If they
are part of JBDS default package, then it means that JBDS will also
require Java 8.
If we can't require Java 8 for Batch
and Arquillian then we have to switch to Sapphire 8.2 from 9.0
in our TP.
Sapphire 8.2 supports Mars but Mars update site includes
Sapphire 9.0. only.
How are we going to deal with that?
If we want to keep Java 7, we can simply include only Sapphire 8.2
in the target-platform and keep Sapphire 9.0 out. But I guess
Sapphire 8.2 and 9.0 cannot be installed simultaneously; can they?
If not, then we need to make sure no other project that is important
to us and that we want to work together with JBoss Tools relies on
So is anyone aware of some other project that requires Sapphire and
that we'd like to keep compatible with?
