Hy Guys,

My job is to support people in various tools related to continuous integration in java.

We are currently using Hudson 3.1.2 with the findbugs plugin.

We are facing a problem with projects using java 1.8 : the findbugs plugin we use in version 4.48-h-1 doesn't handle java 1.8.

My question is the following : what do we have to do in order to allow projects to use java 1.8 and findbugs ?

Do we have to move to the last version of hudson ?

If we stay in Hudson 3.1.2 wich plugins do we have to change ?

To be more precise : here is the list of plugins we use :
SCP plugin 1.8
HTML Publisher plugin 1.2

To be more precise : the findbugs plugin in version 2.0.3 doesn't handle java 1.8 .class files . It's a known limitation of the findbugs plugin in that version.

My need is to have a clear idea of the work to do to handle java 1.8 : what version of hudson ? nexus ? sonar ? which plugins ?

Thanks for your help

JDK 7 to JDK 8 is a major leap in the Java Platform. Though we have tested Hudson 3.1.2 to work with JDK 1.8, we have not tested all the plugins. Most of the plugins might work with out problem, except those plugins that work on the Class binary level such as findbugs plugin. It may be a matter of updating the dependent libraries. However those libraries need to support JDK 8. For example Findbug plugin depends on external findbug libraries. We may have to update findbug plugin with findbug libraries that support JDK 8.

Please file a bug about findbug plugin failing with JDK 8 at https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=Hudson (component plugins)
