    [ARIES-1186] Support Java 8 with ASM 5.0.2 in Aries Proxy

    Patch uses ASM 5.0.2 and handles java 8 default methods in proxies. 
    Running integration tests on Java 8 requires a Pax Runner 1.8.6-SNAPSHOT. (Build locally
or add OPS4J Snapshots repo).
    To run tests under Java 8, first compile under Java 7, then use "mvn test" only under
Java 8.

    [ARIES-1186] Support Java 8 with ASM 5.0.2 in Aries Proxy

>                 Key: ARIES-1186
>                 URL:
>             Project: Aries
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Proxy
>    Affects Versions: proxy-impl-1.0.2
>            Reporter: Harald Wellmann
>            Priority: Critical
> Aries Proxy does not work under Java 8, since it depends on ASM 4 which does not support
Java 8.
> This is currently a blocker for working with Karaf 3.0.1 under Java 8. (Karaf contains
Aries Proxy Impl 1.0.2).
> Upgrading to ASM 5.0.2 requires changing a few {{super()}} calls in Aries subclasses
of ASM classes.
> I tried a local build of Aries Proxy Impl 1.0.3-SNAPSHOT with these changes, and the
result seems to be ok for Karaf.
> The larger part of the issue on Aries side is the dependency on a prehistoric version
of Pax Exam which depends on Pax Runner (with additional configuration tweaks from Aries)
which does not support Java 8 either, so I haven't been able to run the Proxy integration
