Michael Musgrove commented on JBTM-2432:

Yes that is what I have done - the only thing I disabled are the tests that require a WildFly container:- if we build on Java 7 and then run arquillian tests using an Arquillian WildFly Managed Container Adapter that connects to a WildFly that was built using Java 8 then we get errors because Arquillian says "it cannot start container".

The CI job that tests we build and run on IBMs J9 Java7 JVM (that's a mouthful) should continue to pass. However if, in the future, a developer were to use a Java 8 feature then this CI job will start failing (unless IBM decide to support their J9 Java 8 compiler on linux).

> We currently have provisional support for the IBM® J9 virtual machine for Java 7 but building narayana master now requires Java 8 (which we inherited from WildFly master which enforces Java 8).
> Now it appears that the J9 virtual machine for Java 8 is not available on linux. When you go to the download page the linux download button redirects to the Oracle Hot Spot VM. We either need to abandon support for J9 or we add a CI machine running z/OS
