I believe so, but we also need an update to job groups for Mg, as
currently -merge jobs are running with JDK8, and that has
odlparent/master currently broken -- see

This patch won't work because job-groups in JJB do not support defining
variables (and variables set in job-groups have the highest priority).
Yeah, I meant the URL as a pointer to your explanation :)

The {disable--job} variable that's mistakenly declared in that job-group
is getting parsed as a string literal in fact.

The best way forward I think is to duplicate that job-group and create
one for JDK 11 then projects that want to do JDK 11 can use the new
Hmm... I may be missing something, but wouldn't it suffice if:

1) 'odl-maven-jobs' would *not* define a java-version
2) project definition had a global java-version variable


Something like:

- project:
name: odlparent-master
- '{project-name}-gerrit-release-jobs'
- odl-maven-jobs

java-version: openjdk11
mvn-settings: odlparent-settings
mvn-opts: '-Xmx1024m'
mvn-version: mvn35

- project:
name: odlparent-5.0.x
- '{project-name}-gerrit-release-jobs'
- odl-maven-jobs

java-version: openjdk8
mvn-settings: odlparent-settings
mvn-opts: '-Xmx1024m'
mvn-version: mvn35

Yes, that would mean we would lose multi-JDK verify jobs -- I know next
to nothing about this, hence maybe we could have a list of java-versions
and everything but -verify jobs would just pick up the first entry?

Am I missing the point entirely? :)
