I am running it under Java 8. So far without any visible problems. I
am curious about what has been modified/changed in Fedora 21 to
warrant requirement of Java 8. And if I want to run Eclipse or Android
Studio under Java 7 what would I have to do. Mostly for academic
I think the main thing that has changed is that Java 7 isn't packaged for
F21. Plus, there doesn't seem to be a good reason to run it on Java 7, to
warrant the pursuit of -target 1.7 in its build, because Eclipse can still
cross-compile to other versions, even though itself is running on Java 8.
