Re: [cdt-dev] Time to switch to Java 1.7?

Eclipse 4.3.1 works just fine on Mavericks with Oracle's JDK 1.7. Microsoft doesn't provide any version of JDK, but it doesn't stop anybody from using Eclipse on Windows.

I do not have experience with this specific Oracle version, but past experiences with non-Apple maintained versions were not that great, due to many small details, that finally ruined the general good experience provided by OS X.

If OS X Mavericks comes with 1.7 preinstalled, ok, otherwise perhaps we could wait a bit...

Mavericks still downloads Java 6 by default. The latest I've read about Apple's Java plans was that they were not going to provide their own Java 7 and they would contribute to the OpenJDK project. So I don't think we'll ever see an "Apple-maintained" major version again.
