> [Following our mailing list discussion|http://markmail.org/thread/6jodptl3to2lsfsi]:
> JDK6 has been officially put end of life by Oracle more then 2 years ago
> (February 2013). Other projects in Hadoop ecosystems have already dropped JDK6 support
- for example Hadoop [1], HBase [2] or Pig[3] and hence I would like to kick off discussion
to do the same in Sqoop as well.
> What exactly that would mean for our users:
> * User would need to use at least JDK7 on the runtime - we’re spawning mapreduce job,
so entire cluster would have to be running on at least JDK7
> What would that mean for Sqoop developers:
> * We would change our build scripts to use -source and -target 1.7 [4] preventing the
compilation with JDK6
> * We could use JDK7 specific language features in the source code [5]
