Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6399) Lift JDK minimum to JDK 8
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2018 21:18:00 GMT


Matt Nelson commented on MNG-6399:

I would like to consider a JDK uplift from the larger maven ecosystem perspective, specifically
for plugin developers. I think a barrier for contributions is going emerge by requiring
the lowest common denominator compile targets.

Java 8 introduced quite a few language features that can simplify plugin development(lambdas
and streams). I just attempted to introduce a new feature on a plugin that took quite a few
more lines and time to implement where a parallel stream would've reduced it to a handful
of lines in a few minutes.
