  db : incompatible-java-bytecode-format with OpenJDK 7 as default-jdk

Status in “db” package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  During a recent rebuild test it was detected that db builds Java bytecode
  which is only compatible with Java >= 7.

  The default-jdk in Ubuntu Quantal has been changed to OpenJDK 7 and all
  packages that Build-Depend on default-jdk are being tested to ensure that
  they produce bytecode which is backwards compatible with earlier versions
  of Java.

  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/JavaTeam/Java7Default contains more details on how
  to resolve this issue and make sure that the Java bytecode built by this
  package is compatible with earlier Java runtime environments.

  Note that lintian in Ubuntu Quantal also contains a experimental check
  which can detect this problem (incompatible-java-bytecode-format).  Enable
  this by using the -E flag when running lintian.
