      Description

      Changing minimal JDK requirement has huge impact for most users as both jenkins master and slave need to be upgraded. As JDK 7 will be EOL soon, it seems a better choice to me to directly move to Java 8

      • users to discover this compatibility break will only have to upgrade one
      • impact on jenkins development is far more exciting.

            I have this PR in flight. I hope to be able to get back to it at the end of this week. But any feedback/hint there about how to solve the issue with infradna/bridge-method-injector to work with JDK8 is welcome in the meantime before I dig into it.
