Description Alex Barker 2020-07-02 15:34:16 UTC
New minor revision update for Apache Ant.  Updated ebuilds available at

I made a small patch update to the launcher.  Currently it warns about tools.jar missing on JDK 11.

Reproducible: Always

i'm just doing the bump. what is the purpose of deleting that elif branch? i suppose it still should be there for any jdk:8 in case it fails for some reason.

The elif stuff seems to be a gentoo addition that doesn't apply to JDK >= 9.  It could be loosened up instead of removed, just not sure how we want to do that.

It looks like you already bumped 1.10.8 and removed that warning so this can be closed along with 682136.  Thanks!

i really did the bump to 1.10.8 but i did not remove the warning and that's the reason i left this bug open. this is the code from ant script:

if [[ -n "${TOOLS_JAR}" ]] ; then
elif [[ $(java-config -f) != apple-jdk-bin* ]] ; then
  echo "Warning: Unable to determine tools.jar location."
  echo "  If build fails because sun.* classes could not be found,"
  echo "  Make sure you are using a JDK, not JRE as your user/system VM."
  echo "  and that you have java-config version 2.0.30 or above installed."

if i get it right, it will still show the warning for jdk:11. not sure if that's how it should be or not. maybe we just need to restrict the check to jdk:8, but i need a confirmation from someone who knows it for sure :-)

bump is done and now already stable. for the warning message please file a new bug if needed
