+1 for Dan's plan
And for the JiBX with JDK8, how about we just document in the release notes that some optional
components like JiBX won't support JDK8 due to they are kind of obsolete?

some financial support that's not going to happen.

main blocker we have right now is all the JIBX related stuff as the JIBX plugin cannot work
with Java8.  It’s pretty much out of our hands (and not really even in the JIBX’s folks
hands) as it would require a release of BCEL from the Apache Commons folks first.   I*think*
 if a BCEL release was made, we could at least build CXF with Java8.   That would leave a
couple remaining issues:
