      Pros

      Java 7 is end of life since April 2015.

      It brings Default Methods which would make retro compatibility a lot easier for us (it's very hard to add new features to existing API right now).

      Required for:

      • Infinispan 8
      • JGroups 4
      • Jetty 9.3+

      Nice to have

      • Lambda Expressions
      • Repeating Annotations which would probably allow us to use several times @Named instead of @Component(hints={"hint1", "hint2"}) for example
      • New date/time APIs (pretty much what is in Joda Time). We should refactor our $datetool velocity tool to make the java.time api available from velocity

      System requirement: http://java.com/en/download/help/sysreq.xml
