Subject [DISCUSS][FUTURE] Move to JDK1.8 and support JRE1.8
Date Tue, 27 Dec 2016 07:23:35 GMT
All,


Java7 has eol-ed, it's about time to move to Java8 for both codebase and runtime [1].


An experimental PR [2] shows that moving to Java8 is fairly straight forward. The only component
that is failing is F5 network plugin, which lacks authors/maintainers as this issue has been
previously raised on dev@ [3].


In order to move to JDK8, we'll need to take hard decisions to comment/exclude plugins such
as F5 from the default build profiles that may not get fixes and improvements from their authors/maintainers.
Thoughts, comments?
