>                 Key: CB-11640
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-11640
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android, Docs
>    Affects Versions: 6.3.0
>         Environment: OS: Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt25-2+deb8u3 (2016-07-02)
x86_64 GNU/Linux
> Cordova: 6.3.0
> Cordova Android: 5.2.1
>            Reporter: Andrew Neff
>            Assignee: Joe Bowser

> Android platform documentation says JDK 7 or later. 
> http://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/latest/guide/platforms/android/index.html
> In fact, the default/sample project build throws a java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError
in :transformClassesWithDexForDebug.
> -->> 
> Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/android/dx/command/Main
: Unsupported major.minor version 52.0
> <<--
> When I change to JDK 8, the problem goes away and everything seems OK. (I only tested
this with OpenJDK, but suspect it will be the same for Oracle Java.)
> If you decide to fix this by changing the docs, be aware that the JDK download link you
currently provide offers only JDK 7 downloads.
