Thanks Eric and Patrick. The installation procedure specifically talks about JDK 6 and hence the question. My cluster is 0.9.5 and on JDK 7. Just wanted to make sure I dont encounter any strange errors.

Subject: Storm dependency on JVM version

Hi,
Does storm 0.9.5 work well with Open JDK version - 7
java version "1.7.0_79"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (rhel-2.5.5.3.el6_6-x86_64 u79-b14)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.79-b02, mixed mode)

Is there a hard dependency on java 6?

Thanks
Kashyap
