Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-16219) Hadoop branch-2 to set java language version to 1.8
Date Thu, 28 Mar 2019 19:33:00 GMT
Steve Loughran created HADOOP-16219:

             Summary: Hadoop branch-2 to set java language version to 1.8
                 Key: HADOOP-16219
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-16219
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: build
    Affects Versions: 2.10.0
            Reporter: Steve Loughran

Java 7 is long EOL; having branch-2 require it is simply making the release process a pain
(we aren't building, testing, or releasing on java 7 JVMs any more, are we?). 

Staying on java 7 complicates backporting, JAR updates for CVEs (hello Guava!) &c are
becoming impossible.

Proposed: increment javac.version = 1.8
