    After my post I got a couple of offline and online questions about details for JVM 1.8 in the Notes Client.

    The release notes will be update but here is the comment from Scott in case you missed it in the comments.


    Thanks Scott for this detailed additonal information!!!



    Java Upgrade to 1.8.

    The Java run time environment provided with Domino has been upgraded to Java JRE version 1.8 to provide you with access to the latest features.

    - This is actually both Notes & Domino. So the JRE will be 1.8 for both Notes & Domino in 9.0.1 FP8.

    The preliminary fix list will be updated to state this. This was the first step.

    Designer will have 1.6 for compiling applications in FP8. But top of the list for the next FP is to upgrade the compiler in Designer to also use Java 1.8.


    This will come with a number of other dependency upgrades:

    - Upgrading the version of Eclipse, SWT, OSGi for the Notes client & Designer

    - Upgrading the version of OSGi for the Domino Server

    The work was big enough that it was separated into 2 Feature Packs. 901FP8 starts the work.

    Look for the session at IBM Connect 9am Wed Feb 22nd: Notes and Domino Roadmap
