This page summarizes all the work that must be done to add Java™ 8 support to API Tools.

Current Status at a Glance

Java 8 features
Default Methods Lambda Expressions Type Annotations Method References Update to ASM 5.x


   Completely tested

Partially tested or "requires more testing"

Not tested yet

Current Status

So far there are 4 nodes that we need to support in usage and tag scanning:

  • IntersectionType
  • LambdaExpression
  • PackageQualifiedType
  • ExtraDimension

We have to update ASM to a 5.x version to have the delta comparator work.

Remaining Work

TBD

How to Test

  1. Get the API tools source from the PDE UI git repo.
  2. Follow the instructions on testing the Java™ 8 support on the JDT Core wiki page.
