Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9282) Java 7 support
Date Wed, 03 Apr 2013 11:11:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9282?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13620844#comment-13620844

Kevin Lyda commented on HADOOP-9282:

Oracle's last security update was on 04-03-2013 and did include a patch for Java 6. It's not
clear that the next one will.

Alternatively, RedHat has stated that they'll keep maintaining OpenJDK 6 - does Hadoop work
on OpenJDK-6's JRE?

In general, any update on this?

>                 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.
> http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HadoopJavaVersions
> 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
> Does Hadoop support Java 7 and if so could the docs be changed to indicate that?
