[X] +1 yes, drop Java 6 and make the projects only supporting Java 7from now on

This will be effective from next major release, correct? Or are we planning to have this in effect with R2.x?

Hi guys,

following a discussion we have had on the dev list regarding the support
of Java 6 and the strain it puts on some of the maven dependencies we
are using, here is a proposal to stop supporting Java 6 and to only
support Java 7 & 8 from now on.

Keep in mind that Java 6 is not anymore supported by Oracle (except for
paying customers) since feb 2013, and Java 7 is out for now 3 years.

So let's vote :

[ ] +1 yes, drop Java 6 and make the projects only supporting Java 7
from now on
[ ] +/- 0 : I don't mind/ no strong opinion
[ ] -1 no, we should keep going and adapt to support Java 6

Many thanks !
