[POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

Stephan Ewen
Hi all!

I would like to get a feeling how much Java 7 is still being used among
Flink users.

At some point, it would be great to drop Java 7 support and make use of
Java 8's new features, but first we would need to get a feeling how much
Java 7 is still used.

Would be happy if users on Java 7 respond here, or even users that have
some insights into how widespread they think Java 7 still is.

Thanks,
Stephan

I think this easier done in a straw poll than in an email conversation.

I created one at: http://www.strawpoll.me/12535073



Though I prefer Java 8 most of the time I have to work on Java 7. A lot of the infrastructure I work on still runs Java 7, one of the companies I build a prototype for a while back just updated to Java 7 2 years ago. I doubt we can ditch Java 7 support any time soon if we want to make it easy for companies to use Flink.


cheers Martin

Re: [POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

There's always a tradeoff we need to make. I'm in favor of upgrading to
Java 8 to bring in all new Java features.

The common way I've seen (and I agree) other software upgrading major
things like this is 1) upgrade for next big release without backward
compatibility and notify everyone 2) maintain and patch current, old-tech
compatible version at a reasonably limited scope. Building backward
compatibility is too much for an open sourced project

Re: [POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

Robert Metzger
Looks like 9% on twitter and 24% on the mailing list are still using Java 7.

I would vote to keep supporting Java 7 for Flink 1.3 and then revisit once
we are approaching 1.4 in September.

Re: [POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

Robert Metzger
Hi all,

as promised in March, I want to revive this discussion!

Our users are begging for Scala 2.12 support [1], migration to Akka 2.4
would solve a bunch of shading / dependency issues (Akka 2.4 will remove
Akka's protobuf dependency [2][3]) and generally Java 8's new language
features all speak for dropping Java 7.

Java 8 has been released in March, 2014. Java 7 is unsupported since June
2016.

So what's the feeling in the community regarding the step?

Re: [POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

Flavio Pompermaier
We're not using Java 7 anymore from last year already.
So +1 to upgrade to java 8 from Okkam

Re: [POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

Greg Hogan
In reply to this post by Robert Metzger
Is this not two different issues?
- adding builds for Scala 2.12
- upgrading to Java version 1.8

It may be time to switch, but I haven’t seen anything in FLINK-5005 which prevents simply adding Scala 2.12 to our supported build matrix and continuing to build 2.10 / 2.11 against Java 1.7.

Greg

Re: [POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

There are several high impacts security vulnerabilities in JDK 7 and will
not be addressed.

As a result we completely moved away from JDK 7.

+1 on separating the tasks of supporting Scala 2.12 and JDK 8 in two steps.

Re: [POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

Stephan Ewen
Bumping this thread again.

There are several strong points for dropping Java 7 support, apart from the
fact that it is not maintained

  - We could really use the Java 8 default methods feature in interfaces to
evolve the API without breaking backwards compatibility

  - Easier build setup for Scala 2.12 (which requires Java 8), no need to
manage the tricky combinations of Java / Scala versions

  - Ability to use vanilla Akka (rather than Flakka) which requires Java 8.
    - Fewer problems for users that use Akka in the Flink applications
    - Flakka currently does not support Scala 2.12
    - Newer Akka versions shade protobuf, which is important

I think these together make a pretty good case for bumping the required
Java version to Java 8.

It would just help both Flink users (dependency management, Scala versions)
and developers (build simplification) a lot.
Unless we see users stepping forward and making a case that it will be
impossible for them to upgrade to Java 8, I suggest to go forward with this.

Best,
Stephan

Re: [POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

Driesprong, Fokko
Hi,

I would be in favor of dropping Java 7 as we don't use it in our hadoop
infra (and we are a bank). Also, Spark 2.2 has been released today,
which doesn't
support Java 7 <http://spark.apache.org/releases/spark-release-2-2-0.html>
anymore, and Flink should not lack behind :-)

Cheers, Fokko

Re: [POLL] Who still uses Java 7 with Flink ?

Robert Metzger
+1 to drop Java 7 support

I believe that we can move to Java 8 for the argument you've stated.
ElasticSearch 5, Spark 2.2  require Java 8 already, Hadoop 3.0.0 will
require it as well.

Hi,



I would be in favor of dropping Java 7 as we don't use it in our hadoop

which doesn't

support Java 7 <http://spark.apache.org/releases/spark-release-2-2-0.html>

anymore, and Flink should not lack behind :-)
