Subject Re: Dropping support for JDK6 in Apache Hadoop
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2014 18:44:00 GMT
While it sounds like a topic for a different discussion (or list@), do you
think it would be too crazy to skip JDK7 completely and just go to JDK8
directly? I think downstream components like HBase, Spark and so on would be a
huge driving factor to make the same change in Hadoop and other parts of the
ecosystem.

Thoughts?

This means, from hadoop-2.7.0 onwards we will not support JDK6 anymore and we *may* start
relying on JDK7-specific apis.
