Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] core.jobs dependency on Java 8

Just for your information, in today's RAP meeting we agreed to

- keep RAP 3.1 in the Neon simultaneous release despite the
core.databinding dependencies on Java 8
- keep the RAP 3.1 bundles Java 7 compatible
- provide an alternative target platform based on Eclipse Mars for Java 7 users.

With this policy, the core.jobs BREE would not be an issue for RAP anymore.

Thanks to all for your feedback and cooperation.

Regards,
Ralf
