Java 7

Is Java 7 still a no no for Rumble bots? I'm about to update my development machine to Linux Mint 14, and wondering if I should go for OpenJDK 6 or 7.

Yep, still Java 6. Good luck!

Thanks for the info.

Do OpenJDK 6 and 7 play nice installed on the same system at once? I've got a game that has issues with OpenJDK 6. Maybe it's a sign that I need to just stick with Robocode over other distractions.

Oh, and having a great time with student LEGO robots running RobotC. It's been a trip adjusting to C's quirks, and oh how I miss objects! *chuckles*

I think you can just use Java 7 and just make sure Eclipse (or whatever) is set to compile with Java 6 compatibility.

Lego robots sounds pretty fun!

It is ridiculously fun. Last week they made bots that could navigate a maze with touch sensors and/or ultrasonic range sensors. It certainly gets them interested in getting that code working!
