I don't know why we specify the Java version for plugins.  When already 
have some restrictions on the level of Java specified in the server 
itself ... so it seems redundant and unnecessary to call it out in the 
plugins in general.  We could special case this dependency if there is 
ever a need for a specific java version by a plugin when the server 
supports multiple versions.
