Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9282) Java 7 support
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 14:47:13 GMT
Kevin Lyda created HADOOP-9282:

             Summary: Java 7 support
                 Key: HADOOP-9282
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9282
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: documentation
            Reporter: Kevin Lyda

The Hadoop Java Versions page makes no mention of Java 7.


Java 6 is EOL as of this month ( http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java_6.xml ) and that's
after extending the date twice: https://blogs.oracle.com/henrik/entry/java_6_eol_h_h While
Oracle has recently released a number of security patches, chances are more security issues
will come up and we'll be left running clusters we can't patch if we stay with Java 6.

Does Hadoop support Java 7 and if so could the docs be changed to indicate that?
