The issue is that features beyond JDT need to be updated before Java 8 is supported across various Eclipse features. In particular, WTP needs Java 8 facet version before web application developers can take advantage of Java 8. There may be others.
In case this goes forward, could other projects that need to distribute Java 8 enablement signal so on this thread so that we know who would be participating?

Can you explain why you need two patches? For me the given instructions work fine and those involve only one patch / repo.

I am wondering if we should do a limited SR release to pickup Java 8 patches. As it stands, Eclipse users interested in Java 8 would have to hunt for and install at least two patches, which doesn’t paint Eclipse in a good light.
