We are moving our product build from the Eclipse 3.x series to the 4.x
series and part of this
has involved updating our JVM versions as we migrate to a Luna based
We were building our product with a Java 8 installation and end up with
an error trying to install
some 3rd part external plugins that seemed to imply that we should be
building with Java 7 instead.
However, if we try and do that (build with a Java 7 version instead of
Java 8) we end up with.
c:\sbinstaller\productBuild\productBuild_4.0.xml:39: The following
error occurred while executing this line:
Unsupported major.minor version 52.0
This implies to me that there is a dependency on Java 8 for PDE/P2 based
builds. Is this correct?
