Requirement of Java 1.8 for Dataone V2
I believe we agree that java 1.7 will be the requirement for V2. And the current trunk has been upgraded in August, 2014.

Java 7 vs Java 8 options?
Decision: Host our own OpenJDK to provide Java 8
- Need to create package
- Need to update Jenkins to build using Java 8. Likely to use Java 7 compatibility when compiling so that
- All developers will need to update to use the same (similar) JDK

Release and Deployment plan is to build with source and target set to 1.7, and run under java 1.8 on CNs.
Do not have to change the openjdk-1.7.jdk requirement in dataone-cn-os-core, because the code is java 7 compliant
Just will change the default java on the CNs.
Will do all building and deploying from jenkins-1.dataone.org
Need to build a trusty repository for each deb package and reconfigure apt sources.d/dataone.list to pull from the new trusty distribution.
