The Java 8 TCK update is for EE 6, not EE 7. The EE 7 TCK might
also pass with Java 8 (we should try that independent of which Java
version we require).
Aha, this is what i was interested in.
Any chance you can try with JDK8 against current master?
Doing this now.
Scott, can you confirm this?
>From the EE 7 platform specification:
Requirements for All Java EE Profiles
The Java Platform, Standard Edition 7 is the required foundation for
any Java EE 7 profile.
Yes, but that doesn't say that is the only version that is required.
*EE.2.4.1 Container Requirements*
"This specification requires that containers provide a Java Compatible™
runtime environment, as defined by the Java Platform, Standard Edition,
v7 specification (Java SE)."
Which means any Java runtime that is compatible with v7 is fine, and as
far as we know 8 is backward compatible, as it provides all v7 does and
Being able to run with Java 7 is what I get out of either the profile or
the container requirements, both seem to state the requirement for V7.
This sounds like a question for the EE 7 expert group (perhaps they
didn't really mean that Java 7 could be used to run an EE 7 implementation).
