Gradle 3 and Java 6


(Joshua Street) #1

I know that Gradle no longer supposedly supports Java 6 and below. I wanted to get clarification on what that meant.

Does that mean that Gradle itself will not run on Java 6, but you may still fork for compile tasks and use a different compiler? I am hoping to get our teams on Gradle 3 but most projects are still Java 6 in production.

Correct. https://docs.gradle.org/3.0/userguide/java_plugin.html#sec:java_cross_compilation
