Given the Bluemix announcement that java 8 is supported. What do I need to do to get my java 8 app compiling in the IBM Bluesmix build pipeline (jazzhub build and deploy).
I have set the java8 environment variable and restaged the app using the following:
cf set-env <myApp> JBP_CONFIG_IBMJDK "version: 1.8.+" cf restage <myApp>
The specific 'builder type' I am using is 'Maven' and the failures I receive are around the new date and time classes in java8.
