Java Question

Apache FTP Server: MVN Build Failed on Java 8 (SSL)

I am trying to build Apache FTP Server on my Arch Linux Box.

OS: Arch Linux 64-Bit (Up-to-date).
Kernel: 4.8.6-1.
Java: Oracle 1.8.0_112.
Maven: 3.3.9.

Both Open-SSL and TLS are installed.

Whenever I run "MVN install" in the build directory, I get the following errors. I believe the problem is due to Java 8 disabling SSL v3.0 in favor of TLS? If so, it seems like a bad idea to just compile with an older version of java. Should this library not be used, or is there a better way to handel this?

Answer

It turns out I was missing a very basic step. The error

[INFO] Apache FtpServer Core .............................. FAILURE

was due to missing dependencies. I downloaded and installedthe latest source Mina Apache file, which includes Apache Core. The install now went through without any problems. Horray for simple solutions!
