sagar commented on DERBY-6809:

Thanks Mike ...

Thing is not just java 7,8,9 support per se 

but specifically if code can be auto modified usig tools to take advantage of new language
features specifically the lambdas n streams n collections n concurrency changes along with
the new io enhancements and stronger encryptions in java8 ... 

then we can see performance benefits as well as security improvements ... 

software always played catch up to hardware advancements and now java 8 presents an opportunity
to truely leverage the multicore processors so that even on a simple dualcore netbook the
advantages can be seen which alloys software developers using derby in their products apps
etc. to ve more flexible and have some more horizontal growth on their products ...

so my point is not just be able to compile and run on newer java but take advantage of the
neweer features in java new versions

take advantage of the new features in JDK 1.8 for better multiuser performance and better
utilization of current day multicore processors?
> Plainly put, can we have from 11.0 onwards a version of derby which takes advantage of
the advancements and new features in java 1.8 ...
