Thanks for helping out too.  You never know how software actually runs in the wild.  I’m
already hitting bugs that didn’t show up in testing. *sigh*

a whole list of jdk8 options, including, for ubuntu hosts only, openjdk. Should we switch
the jvm for our nightly builds to open jdk 8?

That’s a great question. The directory isn’t labeled and interrogating the JDK isn’t
being helpful either.  Here’s the first ever run from Yetus… 


Unfortunately, I hit a bug when I enabled Docker mode a bit ago brought on by a recent code
change.  Until that gets fixed, we’re sort of at the mercy of what’s on the Jenkins box.

FWIW, I’m in the process of testing the per-instance maven repos now.  While I’m there,
I think I'm going to bump the JDK7 version up to something newer (we’re on 55, go to 79).
