Java supported versions

According to this table Jira is not supprting Java 7.

Java 6 is becoming obsolete and "EOL date has been extended from July 2012 to November 2012"


Do you have any plans to support (or at least to test with) Java 7 for your tools?

JIRA 5.2 supports Java 7.

But Crowd unfortunately don't :{

And there is a recommendation to run Crowd on the same server that Jira uses.

The worst thing is that, Crowd breaks on plugin initialization throwing very strange and confusing exceptions.

Just install two versions of Java, one for Jira, one for Crowd. It won't be long before Crowd runs on Java 7 properly.

Currently we're running on Java 6 both jira and crowd.

As soon as Crowd supports Java 7 we're planning the switch.

However Atlassian Crowd documentation states that crowd supports java 7

Currently this is being tracked here:

Unfortunately there is no ETA on that.



Can this please be looked at? I commented on the issue you've linked without any reply. The problem is that Confluence and most other Atlassian products have moved on. It's very annoying for us currently keeping inconsistent environments.

Hi Harry,

We are working on Java 7 support for all Atlassian products as we speak. I can't give you a concrete time frame but we will make an annoucement when Java 7 compatible products are made available.
