The Bigtop distribution cannot be build with either JDK 1.6 nor JDK 1.7
At least solr giraph and hue have a build requirement on JDK 1.7
On the homepage JDK 1.6 is mentioned as a requirement.
Otherwise the Distribution cannot be build with JDK 1.7 , since oozie enforces the requirement to 1.6.
A big mess.
What scares me that the jenkins http://builds.apache.org/view/All/job/Bigtop-trunk/ seems to work flawless .
My jenkins build needs heavy patching, how should I proceed ?
