Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Moving for JDK8, this time for real!
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2017 17:38:49 GMT
Thank you all, the PR has been merged now.


As a note, developers please setup Jenv in your environment and make sure to install/setup
both JDK7 and JDK8 to help you work on master and 4.9/previous branches:

http://www.jenv.be/


No additional build changes are required.


For deploying and testing CloudStack from master, a new systemvmtemplate will be required.
Please see for urls:

Regards.

All,


Thank you for your feedback.


We've no outstanding objections to the PR, at the time of the 4.10 release we'll document
the new requirements around JRE1.8 and new systemvmtemplate in our installation/upgrade notes.


I'll proceed with the merge later this week.


Regards.

Yes, I understood that your proposal didn't change the debian version, I
suggested that it should do, since when we do update the debian version we
have to test everything over again anyway.

That said, I won't oppose your proposal, I'm +1 of upgrading to jdk 1.8
