Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6722) Java 8 as the minimum supported JVM version for branch_5x

Shalin Shekhar Mangar commented on LUCENE-6722:
-----------------------------------------------

bq. So I'm just sayin' be prepared for a number of requests to "backport JIRAs to Solr 5.3
since we have to stay on Java 7 please". We're not obligated to do that of course.

Yeah, I am aware of that, Erick. That is probably going to happen whether we like it or not
but let's cross that bridge when we get there.

bq. Personally, unless we are boxed in a corner, I think this is what major versions are for.

Yeah, but we have precedence. We upgraded to Java 7 in 4.8.0.

> Require Java 8 as the minimum supported JVM version for branch_5x.
> # Java 7 is already EOL'ed
> # Trunk is already at Java8
> # Important Solr components such as Jetty 9.3.x already require Java 8
> # Nashorn Javascript engine available in Java 8 is just so much faster and we may see
more usage of JS inside Solr (SOLR-7576 etc.)
