    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

    • Complexity:
      High
    • Epic Name:
      Java 1.8 Compatibility

      Description

      The ongoing discussion here - https://groups.google.com/a/openmrs.org/forum/#!topic/dev/RdpSh3SupE8 suggests that we should be moving to Java 8. There are a number of issues at the moment to run OpenMRS on Java 8, as seen on that discussion thread. This epic will act as a task holder for subtasks that need to be done to make OpenMRS build and run without exceptions.

      For example: A change to: <javaCompilerVersion>1.8</javaCompilerVersion>. will cause Spring 3.2.x to fail, since Spring 4 is the version that support JDK 8

      As part of this ticket, we need to point out the possible complications around supporting java 8 for developers more especially module developers, if we can automate some via scripts then we could do it

      Dev Notes:

      When creating pull requests, be sure to specify java8 branch as the target into which to merge the code
