What needs to be done

  • TO BE FILLED


Current status

Updates are filed in the top level bug [380190 - Add support for Java SE 8]

 * Community Process (JCP) and is made available for testing and evaluation purposes
 * only. The code is not compatible with any specification of the JCP.

What to do to set up the IDE

  • You need to install a JDK8 build as an installed JRE in order to run the tests using the JavaSE-1.8 Execution Environment.


Configure a project to use Java 8 features

Because JDT/UI does not yet offer the options to configure a project for Java 8, any projects wishing to use Java 8 features should be manually configured by ensuring these lines in <project>/.settings/org.eclipse.jdt.core.prefs:

org.eclipse.jdt.core.compiler.codegen.targetPlatform=1.8
org.eclipse.jdt.core.compiler.compliance=1.8
org.eclipse.jdt.core.compiler.source=1.8

Disclaimer

This is a work in progress. The contents of the BETA_JAVA8 branch will be updated as the changes are made to the JSR Specification.

If you need any help with this, please contact the JDT/Core team through either the forum or Bugzilla.
