Subject Re: [VOTE] Drop support for Java7 in master branch

There was a [DISCUSS] thread on the topic of moving to jdk8 for unit tests
[1], and many people also expressed the opinion that we should drop JDK 7
support in Hive. Public updates by Oracle was stopped on Apr 2015 [2].

This vote thread proposes to dropping JDK 7 support in the next Apache Hive
2.x release (ie master branch), so that we can start leveraging new
features in Java 8 and also libraries that require java8.


Here is my +1.

Vote ends in 72 hours.

PS: I think this would fall under "Code change" under Hive-bylaws, so it
doesn't seem to really require a formal vote thread. But I think this does
merit wider attention than a jira ticket.
