Subject Re: State of Cassandra and Java 7
Date Fri, 14 Dec 2012 10:22:53 GMT
What kind of official statement do you want? As far as I can be considered
an official voice of the project, my statement is: "various people run in
production with Java 7 and it seems to work".

Or to answer the initial question, the only issue related to Java 7 that I
know of is CASSANDRA-4958, but that's osx specific (I wouldn't advise using
osx in production anyway) and it's not directly related to Cassandra anyway
so you can easily use the beta version of snappy-java as a workaround if
you want to. So that non blocking issue aside, and as far as we
know, Cassandra supports Java 7. Is it rock-solid in production? Well, only
repeated use in production can tell, and that's not really in the hand of
the project. We do obviously encourage people to try Java 7 as much as
possible and report any problem they may run into, but I would have though
this goes without saying.
