Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-10196) Documentation does not list Zing/Zulu as compatible JVMs
Date Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:18:45 GMT
Nitsan Wakart created CASSANDRA-10196:

             Summary: Documentation does not list Zing/Zulu as compatible JVMs
                 Key: CASSANDRA-10196
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation & website
            Reporter: Nitsan Wakart
            Priority: Critical

On the page the following is mentioned under
"Cassandra requires the most stable version of Java 7 or 8 you can deploy, preferably the
Oracle/Sun JVM. Cassandra also runs on OpenJDK and the IBM JVM. (It will NOT run on JRockit,
which is only compatible with Java 6.)"

I work for Azul, the Zing and Zulu JVMs vendor, and was surprised not to find them mentioned
given the many clients we have who deploy Cassandra. It seems strange that an Open Source
project would state such preference to a commercial vendor.
I would think that a more neutral statement would be suitable to the effect that: "Cassandra
requires a Java 7/8 compatible JVM and known to work with the following JVMs (A,B,C etc)."
It also seems fair to mention the range of JVMs under which releases are officially tested/certified
(is there a release certification suite or something similar?).
