[forge-dev] Building Forge with Java 8

Hi Ivan, 
This is still not fixed in later versions of JDK8.
JDK 1.8.0_11 is the last JDK version where forge builds/runs.

I guess one option is that we'll have to make our services derived from the simple service NOT implement the Service interface. This is not required atm, but the javadoc says that it is possible.

However, I think we might run in runtime issues when the addon boots up due to lacking dependencies. That's all I remember from working in this issue

>       <dependency>
>          <groupId>org.jboss.forge.furnace.container</groupId>
>          <artifactId>simple-api</artifactId>
>          <scope>provided</scope>
>       </dependency>
> It was a problem that was already found and documented in this JIRA:

> The JIRA says that this problem occurs with Java 8, build 20. So my question is whether this is fixed in later builds of Java 8. If yes, I will report this to the Open JDK folks to up-port the fix to Java 9 as well. If not, I guess we should fix the poms of the respective projects?
