   Indeed that was the problem, I just commited the fix, thanks !


Somewhat related to this: It seems you have compiled with Java 7
causing the bindings not to work with Java 6.

A lot of users are still running Java 6 on their systems.

You could do this with in build.xml:

<javac target="1.6" .../>

Or something like:

<property name="javac.target" value="1.6" />
..
<javac target="${javac.target}" .../>

Java 6 is still around and I think it should be supported for older
platforms.

   I just compiled with the java available in my system (fedora 19).
Do one really need to release for every version of java potentially
using libvirt-java ?
Can't they just rebuild locally too ?


Sure, but if the code in libvirt.org/maven2 is Java 1.7 systems
building with Maven and using Java 1.6 can't use it.

There is no special code in libvirt-java which requires Java 1.7 to operate.

By setting the source and target version to 1.6 the code will run on
at least 1.6, but will work just fine on 1.7 systems.

It's mainly a compatibility thing.

   Okay, let's just assume i know absolutely nothing about Java use in
   practice :-)


No problem! But the current situation is that the 0.5.0 version out there only works with Java 7.

Maybe release a 0.5.1 which is compiled for Java 1.6?

   I take patches :-) as build.xml is in git


Just sent a patch :)

   ACK'ed i think you can push, right ?


I don't have push permissions on the libvirt-java repo.
