1  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Java 6 or 7? on: 2012-05-20 18:34:19
You provided no context whatsoever, so you shouldn't expect any tailored advice.
I don't understand, I simply wanted to know if i should upgrade to Java 7 and develop my game in Java 7 or should i stick to Java 6.last i heard Java 7 had the infinite compile loop. If it helps I will be creating my own game library. Any assistance would be great appreciated.

Always upgrade Pointing
I understand, just wanted to make sure it was "safe" to upgrade and there weren't any more showstopping bugs i didn't know about that would interfere with my game developing.

we still use 6 because, when we want to just try our game on linux and mac, there is very likely 6 installed.
and if the code requires 7 it doesnt work

as long as our code is on many machine, in many hands we use 6

at release we are going to compile it with 7 and ship a private jre of course.
That's a very good point you make. I didn't know Java 7 wasn't backwards compatible with Mac and Linux. According to the release notes, it said Java 7 was simply a bug fix and i assumed nothing would break if i upgraded.

Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Since the infinite loop bug has been fixed since J7U2, should i update my SDK to Java 7 or should i stick to J6U32? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

yeh they are still a viable option.

especially if you use a library like PulpCore
Thanks, for the quick reply. I plan on starting my game really soon and can't wait to share it with the world.
